Our research in digital media, communication and culture is ranked equal first in Australia and is considered by the national Excellence in Research for Australia (ERA) exercise as well above world standard. It provides the core research focus in our only nationally-funded Centre of Excellence.
Our outstanding strength is based on cutting-edge research:
The ARC Centre of Excellence for Creative Industries and Innovation (CCI) focuses research and development on the role the creative industries and their contributing disciplines play in making a more dynamic and inclusive innovation system and society. With core support from the Australian Research Council from 2005-13, it is acknowledged as a global leader in this emerging field.
ARC Centre of Excellence for Creative Industries and Innovation (CCI)
QUT's investment in capacity and environment in this area includes significant capital works and research infrastructure projects spearheaded by the $60m Creative Industries Precinct (including $15m of Queensland Government funding) where the group is based.
In addition, QUT has supported the predecessor centre, Creative Industries Research and Applications Centre, and then CCI, the Federation Fellowship and iCi with central funds amounting to one of QUT's biggest off-the-top research funding commitments.
The Digital media, communication and culture research strength maps very closely to QUT ERA Field of Research (FOR) codes 2001 and 2002.
ERA (Excellence in Research for Australia) 2012 score:
ERA (Excellence in Research for Australia) evaluates the quality of research undertaken in Australian universities against national and international benchmarks.
Only four other universities in Australia - ANU, Melbourne, University of Queensland and University of Sydney - received a 5 for FOR 20.
Digital media, communication and culture forms the core research strength in QUT's only ARC Centre of Excellence.
The group published more than 25 Higher Education Research Data Collection (HERDC) A1 books 2005-2011, including from leading publishers such as Oxford, Cambridge, Blackwell, Routledge, Sage, Polity, Palgrave Macmillan, University of Queensland Press and Melbourne University Publishing, Hong Kong University Press and Edward Elgar. Its capacity to produce HERDC A1 output as a core indicator of quality in the humanities continues strongly into the present and future.
This research group published more than 25 authored scholarly books - Higher Education Research Data Collection (HERDC) A1 collection - from 2005-2012, and regularly publishes in high-quality journals.
ARC Centre of Excellence for Creative Industries and Innovation (CCI):
ARC funding of $13.98m from 2005-2013 (in RFCD 4001 and 4203, and FoR 2001 and 2002). This represents 28% of the ARC funds allocated, and 2.5 times the amount of the second ranked university.
From 2005-2012, members have been responsible for winning or holding:
This is just a sample of our research activity in this area.
Potential topics for new research students.
The group is the core of large-scale collaborative arrangements at faculty, university, end-user and national levels, exemplified by the formal network of multi-university collaborative arrangements which compose the CCI, and its continued formal partnering with QUT Business School and Faculty of Law.
The depth of cross-disciplinary collaboration is evident in the degree to which evolutionary economics has contributed to new directions for the core Digital media, communication and culture research strength agenda of theorising the nature of the 'creative economy'. This has resulted in high impact output in journals such as the Journal of Cultural Economics and Industry and Innovation. The group has published in high quality journals in:
An extensive 'CCI narrative' details claims in the broadest sense (academic, industry, policy, community) about impact of a significant portion of the Digital media, communication and culture (DMCC) group.
