The Innovation and Creativity Research Programmes explores creative learning, teaching and assessment (LTA) innovations and enterprise development initiatives of institutions (HEIs) and private sector organisations.

Drawing perspectives from all subject matter-based schools, the programmes integrate the theory and practices of innovation and creativity in socio-economic development, particularly in creating and maintaining national innovation systems fit for the 21st Century. The link between a national innovation system and elements of a high knowledge economy index (KEI) is also studied.
