About CREATe?

WHAT IS CREATe?

CREATe is the UK Copyright and Creative Economy Centre, based at the University of Glasgow. From 2012-2018, it was funded as an RCUK Centre jointly by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC), Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) and the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC). From 2018-2023, CREATe is leading work on Intellectual Property, Business Models, Access to Finance and Content Regulation as part of the AHRC Creative Industries Policy & Evidence Centre (PEC). From 2020-2023, CREATe also leads the creative industries stream of a major EU H2020 research consortium: reCreating Europe – Copyright law, cultural diversity and the Digital Single Market.

CREATe investigates the future of creative production in the digital age, and in particular the role of copyright. The Centre brings together an interdisciplinary team of academics from law, economics, management, computer science, sociology, psychology, ethnography and critical studies. The initial consortium included seven UK universities (Glasgow, East Anglia, Edinburgh, Goldsmiths University of London, Nottingham, St Andrews, and Strathclyde). The AHRC Policy & Evidence consortium is led by Nesta, and includes Cardiff University, The Work Foundation – Lancaster University, University of Manchester, University of Newcastle and University of Sussex. CREATe has funded projects across the UK (including at Bath Spa, Bournemouth, Cambridge, City, Oxford, Kent, Leeds, Queen Mary University of London, Queen’s University Belfast) and works with over 80 industry, public sector and civil society partners.

Our digital resources are grouped under the themes of Copyright EvidenceCopyright User and Copyright History with each theme containing a lead resource.

All of our digital resources aim to:

  1. Make primary research materials (data and historical sources) available.
  2. Enable public discourse and debate by translating complex findings and legal context into a more accessible format.
  3. Allow our methodological approach to be scrutinised by academic peers and stakeholders.
  4. Develop material appropriate to our interdisciplinary field.
  5. Be sustainable, particularly when created with partner organisations.

You can also find resources from Key CREATe Events that include video, audio recordings, transcripts and presentations from CREATe conferences, events and launches. They are divided by theme.
