To address this, the Creative Futures Research Centrewas created as a strategic, University-wide collaboration drawing on esteemed international advisers, andis based in the School of Creative & Cultural Industries, UWS. Since its inception, Research Associates have fostered collaborations between neuroscientists and artists, artificial intelligence researchers and musicians, philosophers and designers, computer games programmers and cultural theorists, social media scholars and business professionals, and more. The CFRC aspiresto reconstitute the knowledge economy by advancing interdisciplinaryresearch approaches.
