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 current themes are:

  • Digital Health
  • Digital Humanities
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.
