About CCRI

The Institute is all about making connections – bringing together specialisms in art, design, media production, communication studies, computing and engineering into the University’s largest community of researchers. The CCRI Impact Blog brings together researchers from these specialisms with other academic partners, students, librarians, administrators and external collaborators from the worlds of healthcare, manufacturing, commerce and beyond to showcase the ways our research reaches communities beyond the University.

This blog is managed by the CCRI Team. You can get in touch with us by email or via Twitter @ccri_news.
