We support your digital research through:

  • providing resources
  • consultancy
  • project design and participation.

As a researcher you have full access to the Digital Transformation Hub and can use our equipment and software for free. You can also borrow certain equipment for fieldwork, including international trips. If you are unsure of how to make the best use of equipment and software we can provide full training to yourself and project teams.



If you're not sure how your project can benefit from a digital dimension then come and talk to us. We can advise on how digital might be integrated into your research, how it might improve the quality of your outputs and help with demonstrating impact.

Through our experience, contacts and networks we can find resources and help you explore all the possibilities from:

  • initial data capture
  • processing and visualisation
  • digital presentation of your findings.


By involving the DTH you can ensure that a digital perspective is integral to your project. We have experience of designing projects from initial briefs through to final funding submissions and reporting on progress and and impact. We can support your test or pilot projects to help gather evidence for larger bids.

As well as project design we can provide training and workshops for project participants and partners, both academic and non-academic.
