Data Research Centre for Smart Analytics

UEA has been awarded £1m by the ESRC as part of £5m for a Data Research Centre for Smart Analytics. The project is led by the University of Essex in partnership with UEA and the University of Kent and so represents a milestone in the formation of the Eastern Academic Research Consortium. MED professor Ruth Hancock is the UEA lead. Andy Jones and Marcello Morciano, also from MED, are directly involved. Other UEA members of the Centre come from across all four Faculties. The Centre will make routinely collected data from businesses and local government accessible for research. UEA will work in close partnership with Norfolk County Council and will lead research streams on Supporting Vulnerable People and on Green Infrastructure. We will also make a major contribution to a strand on Methods for Big Data Analytics. The Centre will provide a foundation for further research bids to exploit its data.
