The Creative SPARC

When you aspire to be a leading industrial research centre focused on generating tomorrow’s technologies today, you can’t do it alone. Collaboration with industry, university, and government partners is key – and only through collaboration can the truly innovative ideas be given the space to flourish into reality. Our core values and business foundations reflect this and lay out, in plain terms, how we intend to operate with our customers, partners, and employees – because people are our number one priority.

Along with our brochure on how SPARC operates, this space also acts as a repository for our white papers, IP generation, and research directions. You can also subscribe to our quarterly newsletter and get these posts and other SPARC news sent directly to your email.

Check out some of the latest newsletters and research papers we have in the pipeline.
