Housed in the School of Creative Industries and Innovation Hub’s Honeysuckle building, FASTLab carries out research and development at the intersection of Art, Science and Technology.

FASTLab is a Gateway to the University of Newcastle’s internationally recognised research centres, the expertise of staff, students and graduates, and the outstanding facilities the University has to offer.

Across its themes of Human Behaviour, Future Work, Transmedia Arts, Narrative possibilities and Connected Communities the FASTLab team thinks - among other things - about Innovation and enterprise; Technology (AI & Robotics); globalization; migration; aging; (in-work) poverty and inequality; macro-economic instability. FASTLab’s transdisciplinary team pursues a broad range of projects, from exhibitions and installations, performances and prototypes, to cooperation with the private sector, NGO’s and universities.
