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.
