We arrange regular reading groups, public lectures and offer opportunities to get involved with research projects taking place in the broader CREATe community. CREATe PhDs are also closely associated with other groups like GU-IPS, the UofG Social and Digital Change Group and the Scottish Law and Innovation Network.
