Research Themes

N8 CIR runs training and community events and provides resources for N8 researchers within three key themes: Digital Health, Digital Humanities, and Machine Learning.

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 whose contact details can be found on the Research Theme page or the University Theme Lead page.

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