Five themes have been identified as a basis for developing the CoE which meet the following criteria:

  • strategic importance for some or all N8 partners, reflected in institutional and N8 strategies;
  • outstanding opportunity for research innovation through the novel application of CIR methods;
  • national priorities, with identified and substantial funding streams through UKRI; outstanding scope for innovation in underpinning CIR methods, giving a competitive advantage to N8 researchers.

The chosen themes are:

  • Materials and Manufacturing
  • Digital Health
  • Digital Humanities
  • Sustainable Infrastructure
  • Computational Sciences

In addition there will also be Research Software Engineer and Research Infrastructure Engineer themes.

Active themes will have a local representative at each individual institution. Details of the Theme Leads are available on the theme page.
