We are committed to active innovation and exploration and our research activities are promoted and co-ordinated by The Directorate of Creativity, Innovation + Research. Staff across all disciplines have significant research profiles, and have taken part in major international and national projects.


We value our relationships, and collaborations with other academic institutions, EU programmes and industry is vital. Entrepreneurial collaborations have led to students founding many successfully trading businesses. IADT is a founder member of the M&LA. Current IADT Erasmus projects include Y-NEX and T&D Stories.
