Profile Information

Virtual reality headwear in useThe Centre for Digital Media Cultures conducts impactful research that helps society understand and adapt to changes in digital media and data technologies. This interdisciplinary knowledge spans computing, social science, media, art and design, and focuses on the cross-cutting theme of digital.

We inform practice, research and policy through developing key local, national and international partnerships, cutting across the industrial, public, third and academic sectors.

We work closely with the Digital Catapult Centre Brighton, placing us as a key player in research driven SME innovation for next generation digital products and services. Funded by Innovate UK, it aims to help convert university-led research and development into commercialisable market opportunities, prototyped by small companies in the creative digital and information technology sector.

Centre members maximise the impact of their research, by engaging with community partners and members of the public through public commentary, art exhibitions, crowd-and community sourcing activities, co-production of design and other activities that influence public policy and make a difference for industry.
