The Business School
for the Creative Industries

The Business School for the Creative Industries is UCA's newest school, established in 2018. Led by Professor Philip Powell It is currently building a strong research identity in a few specialist areas and is rapidly expanding its research community.

The School, which is also home to the internationally recognised Centre for Sustainable Design, recently committed to the United Nations' Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME). This ensures all activity at the School focuses on UN PRME’s six key principles – purpose, values, method, research, partnership and dialogue – and emphasises ethics, inclusivity and sustainability in business.

UCA's researchers are constantly innovating and asking questions. Read more about their work in the Business School for the Creative Industries.

Blue Circular Economy is a three-year international project led by Professor Martin Charter, in which a team of researchers looked at the environmental impacts of waste fishing ropes and nets, and facilitated challenges for designers and businesses to create new products from these waste materials.

The project aims to support the development of an industry specialising in reducing fishing net waste in regions across Europe’s Northern Edge. It is co-funded by the EU Interreg Northern Periphery and Arctic Programme (NPA).
