Digital Futures

The Digital Futures Institute is a new research institute established at the University of Suffolk, which aims to bring together academic, entrepreneurs and industrialists to deliver impactful research and business engagement for the benefit of individual citizens, wider society and the UK economy. The University has gone through a period of capacity building with the investment in the Digitech Centre at Adastral Park, an increase in the portfolio of digital based undergraduate and postgraduate courses, and the recruitment of new academic staff who are research active and business engaged. It is developing into a vibrant hub for research and business links that complement our teaching and learning. Academics within the Institute are part of Suffolk CENTRIC in that we are a regional partner of the national Centre of Excellence in Terrorism, Resilience, Intelligence and Organised Crime Research.

The Digital Futures Institute is based in the School of Engineering Arts Science and Technology. It has three research pillars, each consisting of distinct but coherent and related strands.
