The research cluster on North Queensland Regional Creativity and Innovation consists of 13 researchers from across the social sciences, urban and regional planning, agriculture and food security, IT, psychology and public health, humanities, and the creative arts, who are employing an experimental methodology centred on co-creation of both research questions and research outputs. In the first instance, this collective of JCU researchers will investigate North Queensland creativity and innovation ecosystems as they pertain to issues such as co-creating regional futures, food production and consumption, and the landscapes/built environments that the region should aspire too.
