Interdisciplinary Research Centres

C2D3 is one of a select few Interdisciplinary Research Centres (IRC) at the University. The University’s IRCs are established cross-School initiatives that have demonstrated a critical mass of academic support in at least three Schools and have the explicit endorsement of the University’s Research Policy Committee. They extend the research priorities and strategies of the individual Schools by tackling cross-disciplinary challenges and creating a shared cross-School vision in key thematic areas.

Contact details for all of the University’s Interdisciplinary Research Centres (IRCs) and Strategic Research Initiatives (SRIs) can be found here.

C2D3 is represented and active across all six Schools, with truly collaborative research projects.
