N8 CIR runs training and community events and provides resources for N8 researchers within key themes. Our current research themes are:

There are also Research Software Engineering and Research Infrastructure Engineering themes, which cut across all of our research themes.

These themes have been chosen using 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.

Each theme has a local representative at each individual institution. A list of representatives can be found on the theme page.
