The Centre for Creativity in Professional Practice is a unique collaboration between leading researchers and academics from all of City, University of London’s five schools, combining research and education from Business, Design, Arts, Social Science, Computer Science, Health, Law, Engineering and more.

The staff involved in the Centre continue to work and do research within their individual Schools, while also contributing to the Centre’s activities. We also have a small number of PhD students and visiting staff adding to the Centre’s diversity.

City, University of London’s Centre for Creativity in Professional Practice is now hosted by the Cass Business School. The Centre was founded in 2008 as a cross-School venture to undertake interdisciplinary research, teaching and knowledge transfer in creativity and innovation. Its growing focus on enterprise and on leadership in creativity and innovation make Cass a natural new host.

The move, which will took place on the 1st August 2017 sees the Centre transfer not only its Masters in Innovation, Creativity and Leadership (the MICL), but also academics, researchers and funded projects. Moreover, the network of MICL alumni and its extensive community of practitioners will add to the existing wide range of Cass-centred professional communities. The Centre’s interdisciplinary research and teaching will continue to involve academics from across the City as a whole, and it is one of the few genuinely interdisciplinary and long-standing groups in the field globally.

We offer creativity and innovation techniques training and facilitation on a business services basis, both internally and to external organisations. Our blog gives a flavour of our work.
