We are pleased to announce that the University of Oxford has signed an agreement to collaborate with the Connected Digital Economy Catapult.
As part of the agreement we will work with the Digital Catapult to collaborate on joint projects and activities in the following focus areas:
- The Internet of Things (IoT);
- Trust, privacy, & cybersecurity, in particular around personal data;
- Data-driven economics and business models;
- Societal aspects of the digital economy.
The collaborative work will be co-ordinated at Oxford by the Oxford Internet Institute (OII) and its Oxford Digital Economy Collaboration Group (ODEC). Commenting, Bill Dutton, Professor of Internet Studies at OII said:
Dr Maurizio Pilu, Partnerships Director at the Catapult, said:
- Personal and citizen data
- City data
- Health data
In addition, the collaboration will explore opportunities for further work with industry in the areas where Oxford expertise will be of value, including bids to UK & Horizon 2020 funding.
As part of the collaboration, the University has established the Oxford Digital Economy Collaboration Group (ODEC) and is working with the Digital Catapult to explore opportunities for secondment and placement of undergraduates, PhD students, and of staff both from the University and the Catapult.
If you are interested in collaborating with the Digital Catapult, finding out how it might be able to help you or your group, or opportunities for secondment, please contact Bill Imlah, Internet Research and Collaboration Officer: firstname.lastname@example.org
