The nature of digital research is highly collaborative and multi-disciplinary, and requires an agile and innovative approach, drawing on expertise from many partners and subject areas. It often opens up academic dialogue between Humanities and Science, and can bridge the gap between the academic, cultural, technical and commercial worlds.
Our digital research creates collaborative partnerships with a wide range of individuals and commercial partners. We have worked with startups and creatives through the REACT programme, including heritage technology specialists Antenna International; mobile app developers Agant and Calvium; filmmakers Rubber Republic; and educational specialists Flash of Splendour Arts.
We work with institutional partners nationally and internationally. Our digital projects have included collaborators from Stanford University, Jadavpur University (India), University of Oxford, University of Edinburgh and University of British Columbia, Okanagan. We also work with partners from libraries, archives and galleries, including The National Archives, Tate, the Bibliothèque Nationale de France, the Louvre, and others.
Heritage sector partnership
We have also fostered close links with key partners in the South West England region, including Exeter Cathedral, RAMM, Exeter City Football Club, and Exeter City of Literature, as well as the Dorset County Museum, and the Devon Gardens Trust, to promote the unique culture of our region, disseminate our research and methods, and engage with our local community.
Support from funding bodies
We have received the generous support of many funding bodies in the Arts, Humanities and Culture sectors which has enabled us to innovate and bring new digital technologies and methods to our research.
