Industry engagement, social justice and sustainability are the foundation of the philosophy of our members. We believe quality teaching and research cannot be achieved without meaningful engagement with practitioners in the here and now. We are ‘pracademics’ - engagement, innovation and impact underpin our research approach. Because we also know that the challenge of innovation in crafting the future of our society rests on transdisciplinarity. Because of this, the Centre draws together researchers from diverse specialisations, including the UTS Business School but also the Faculties of Arts and Social Sciences (FASS); Design, Architecture and Building (DAB); Engineering and Information Technology (FEIT); Health; Law and Science.
