Creative Colour Lab (CCLab)
Integral to the CFPR, the CCLab focuses on quality digital imaging and printing for artists, with an emphasis on colour print and image quality. The CCLab has ongoing discussions with Hewlett Packard Labs in Bristol, Palo Alto, San Diego and Barcelona; ColourCom Oxford and University of Milan.

In 2006, through European Union, Framework 6 Marie Curie Conferences & Training Courses (SCF), CREATE, Colour Research for European Advanced Technology Employment, was established. Carinna was successful in gaining half a million Euros to work with European Institutes to host, teach and exchange knowledge in many aspects of colour. The objective for the group CREATE is to develop a pan-European network of training projects and conferences that brings together European colour groups and to exchange and disseminate knowledge that enables researchers, especially those at an early stage in their career, to benefit from the knowledge of experts in the field of digital colour.

The long term objective is to develop with artists, designers, technologists and scientists a cross disciplinary approach to improving colour and print. The co-institutes are: Università Degli Studi Di Milano, Italy; Gjøvik University College, Norway; University of Leeds; University of Ulster in Belfast, Northern Ireland, Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, Spain; Université de Reims Champagne-Ardenne, France; Pannon University (formerly University of Veszprém) Hungary. The courses and conferences begin in September 2007 and run for 4 years. To find out more about CREATE, you can visit the website at www.create.uwe.ac.uk

Furthermore, the intention is to provide a forum for dialogue between different fields, to create new insights to an idea or problem and to facilitate the dissemination of cutting-edge research to the commercial and industrial sector and improve economic growth through new collaboration and knowledge transfer, and to help build future research portfolios beyond the time frame of the project.
