CCPR is a dedicated postgraduate media, communication and cultural policy research environment. The Centre is also home to research projects such as the ESRC-funded ‘Television Production in Transition: Independence, Scale and Sustainability’ and RSE-funded 'Screen Policy Dialogues: The Edinburgh International Film Festival and Screen Culture in Scotland'.
CCPR collaborates with CREATe the centre for copyright and new business models in the creative economy.
Our projects and the researchers working on them all contribute to the research culture and interact with PG students through a programme of workshops and seminars.
