Research Centres

We have three research units that further stimulate our research:

Centre for Software Reliability: (CSR) Centre for Software Reliability
Digital Institute: (DI) Digital Institute
Centre for Cybercrime and Computer Security: (CCCS) Centre for Cybercrime and Computer Security

CSR's function is translational, using our research expertise to inform industry. It organises industrially relevant conferences such as Ada UK and holds numerous tutorials and workshops tailored specially to the requirements of industry (e.g. one on safety aspects of the NHS National Programme for IT).

The Digital Institute (DI) builds and supports multi-disciplinary collaborations to tackle key challenges in research at Newcastle University, which has resulted in more than £40 million of funding. The institute uses a structure of digital networks: Engineering, Health, Humanities, Inclusion and Science, in order to disseminate information produced by collaborations and to document and publicise work in other areas of university research that are actively using digital technologies.

The DI also acts as a 'front door' for all digital research at the university, working closely with external organisations to access the latest developments and expertise in digital technologies, with specific themes of Cloud Computing, HPC/HTC, Green Computing, Sensors, Interaction and Visualisation; with facilities such as a Virtual Reality suite.

CCCS carries out research and education to make the Internet safer for families, businesses and organisations. The CCCS team brings together police officers and research scientists to identify future modes of cybercrime and to design innovative, sustainable solutions.
