Welcome to the Creative Economy Research Centre
The University of Hertfordshire Creative Economy Research Centre (CERC) is a multi-disciplinary centre of excellence for research, and for business and social engagement, in the creative industries and the broader creative economy.
CERC is an umbrella for many exciting activities within the University of Hertfordshire's Social Sciences Arts and Humanities Research Institute (SSAHRI), and will increasingly develop new projects and research activity.
CERC brings together academic staff and research students working in a wide range of disciplines. The Centre draws on the expertise from the Schools of Business, Creative Arts, Humanities, Law and Education. It engages in the changing increasing importance of creativity in all areas of the economy.
CERC works with established companies, SMEs, NGOs, policymakers, trade associations and innovation agencies to highlight and develop the key issues driving the creative economy.
