ICC is the University of St Andrews centre for research into the creative industries. We aim to inform intelligent practice, analysing the foundations that sustain the creative industries. We research collaboratively with partners in academia, creative practice, policy, and service provision, and develop national and international links to access comparative and global perspectives on our work.

Our primary focus through 2023 is research within the UKRI Creative R&D Partnership programme: InGAME—Innovation for Games & Media Enterprise. More about Research.

Postgraduate Education

ICC works with the School of Management to deliver a PhD programme providing the coming generation of academic and industry researchers with a firm grounding in social science research, informed by detailed knowledge of the creative industries. For further details, visit the School of Management.
