Welcome to the Centre for Creative Business Innovation.

We explore your questions through multi-disciplinary collaboration. We organize people with deep expertise and match them with our wide range of resources to help you mobilize the change you want to see, and boost your business through uncertain times.

Innovation is new ideas successfully applied. But how do you see things in a new light? You can't find solutions if you're not asking the right questions. And then to share your success, you need to have the right story on the best platform possible. The CCBI helps communities and businesses discover where their issues are, then harnesses our creativity with media, performing and fine arts, design, and communications to drive solutions, commercialize concepts, boost productivity, amplify the story and find the right solution.

Question. Create. Share. All in a time of high-speed change with challenges we've never faced before. Do you want to work with us?

Students

Explore your questions.

The CCBI connects students with industry-partnered projects to further their skill sets and gain practical experience working with real-world clients. We bridge gaps between specialized training and broad application to enable interdisciplinary collaboration that produces tangible outcomes. This style of learning creates lifetime connections between students, technicians, artists and industry.

We also celebrate and showcase student research project outcomes and help students see their work in terms of its applied research impacts.

Faculty

Multi-disciplinary collaboration.

The CCBI enables faculty through supporting their artistic research and collaborations. We connect faculty researchers with industry partners and teams of students, and provide them with space to showcase their creative research work.

We advocate for the creative research process and aim to empower faculty to bring their research to a larger audience. We help faculty see themselves within the research context and break down legacy barriers that keep artistic researchers isolated.
