Dr. Inge Panneels



Inge Panneels' current research is looking at sustainability in the creative industries as both a vehicle for culture change and how creative businesses implement sustainability in their business practice, particularly the circularly economy. She developed the Quintuple Bottom Line (profile, people, planet, purpose and place) framework, informed by funded collaborations with Applied Arts Scotland (Closing the Loop), Kathmandu University and British Council Nepal (2021/2022) and the Royal Society of Edinburgh (RSE) (2021).

Publications include journal articles (Arts), book chapters (Routledge) and books.

She is currently Lecturer in Digital Media in the School of Computing, Engineering and the Built Environment (SCEBE). She was previously (2019-2023) Research Fellow at Edinburgh Napier University on the AHRC funded Creative Informatics project which supported data driven innovation in the creative industries. Prior to this she was Senior Lecturer on the Artist Designer Maker Course at the University of Sunderland (2006-2019). She completed an AHRC funded PhD at Northumbria University (Visual Culture) "Mapping the Anthropocene: an investigation of cultural ecosystem services through artists' engagements with environmental change in Scotland" (2014-2020).
