Creativity + Innovation

The Program on Creativity + Innovation is a catalyst. It works to unleash and guide the creative and innovative energies in our students at NYU Shanghai. Combining inspirations --- from different areas of one's own knowledge, from different people, from different places in the world --- is the fundamental activity which we support, teach, and research.

Our video project is collecting interviews with creators --- in the arts, technology, design, and other fields --- around the world.

We Research

Our case-writing project is building knowledge about Chinese entrepreneurship across a broad range of enterprise (both for-profit and social enterprise) and locations.
Our virtual-reality project is developing technologies to augment education both in and out of the classroom.
