Digital Creativity Labs (DC Labs) is a world centre of excellence for impact-driven research, focusing on digital games, interactive media and the rich space where they converge. 

DC Labs builds on a major (£18 million) investment by three UK research councils, four universities, and over 80 collaborative partner organisations.

We are an interdisciplinary centre employing researchers with background across sciences, social sciences, arts and humanities.

We work with business, government, the third sector and the general public to co-create new forms of interaction and expression in the future digital society.

We operate in a landscape of world-leading research hubs and funding initiatives, including the £12 million EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Intelligent Games and Game Intelligence (IGGI).

We work with our partners to access expertise and insights gained from over £90 million investment in Digital Creativity research over the last 10 years, co-creating novel and innovative projects and jointly realising the huge potential for economic, social and cultural impact.

Our partner organisations come from a wide range of sectors including digital games, media, heritage, museums and galleries, education, healthcare and analytics. We welcome interest from new partners at any time.
