The AUT Creative Industries Research Institute is a hub which weaves together the many creative strands running through the Faculty of Design and Creative Technologies.

It is a focal point for collaborative research and practice between our varied areas of expertise, encourages excellence in our disciplines, and promotes the innovation that is core to many of our creative industries.

The strong research-led culture that permeates our environment allows us to promote the interdisciplinary synergies that not only should, but must, be a part of all creative endeavors, and positions us at the leading-edge of creative industry.
