When and how to be creative? Neuro-cognitive investigation of creative metacognition.

Project description

A closer look at how creative we think we are

Creativity and innovation are important determinants of competitiveness. Defined as the ability to generate new and effective ideas, creativity can elevate cultural progress and serve as a basis for innovation – crucial for enhancing economic competitiveness and strengthening society. On a personal level, creativity increases well-being and learning. The EU-funded CreativeMetacognitio project will explore the individual differences in creative metacognition (CMC) – the self- and contextual-knowledge used to make decisions about one’s own creative efforts and accomplishments. It will build on research showing creative behaviour is an agentic decision. The aim of this Marie Skłodowska-Curie fellowship is to study CMC accuracy and explore CMC regulation facets from a behavioural and neuroscientific perspective.
