The Culture and Creativity Research Institute is Sheffield Hallam University's largest and highest rated community of researchers. It continues the work of the former Cultural, Communication and Computing Research Institute, a large majority of whose work was recognised in the 2008 UK Research Assessment Exercise (RAE) as being of international significance.
The institute is all about making connections - bringing together specialisms in art, design, media production, communication studies, computing and engineering into the University's largest community of researchers.
The Institute includes two Research Centres, the Art and Design Research Centre, and the Communication and Computing Research Centre. In addition, the institute is host to Design Futures who provide specialist research and consultancy services in the areas of product and packaging design.
The Culture and Creativity Research Institute provides a business focussed consultancy and research service in communications and computing to businesses through our dedicated Knowledge Transfer team.
The institute is also home to Design Futures, a discrete unit delivering packaging and product design research to industry. Design Futures has a proven track record as innovators being cited as inventors or contributors to a portfolio of intellectual property, it has accrued a number of design awards.
The institute is housed in the landmark new Cantor building and the Sheffield Institute of Arts Gallery. The gallery has an exciting programme of events and exhibitions running throughout the year.
