Research and Knowledge Exchange Centres

Centre for Enterprise, Design and Innovation

The Centre for Enterprise, Design and Innovation (CEDI) is focussed on building collaborative networks with the highly innovative creative and digital industry sectors. The University’s four academic development themes of Student Engagement, Technology, Design & Innovation and Employability provided the impetus for the creation of the centre, linking University and student activities with creative, innovative and design-led organisations.

Winchester Numerical and Technology Solutions (WINTS)

From Smart Homes to Cybersecurity, WINTS aims to link science and society to provide sustainable solutions to real-world problems.

Centre for Information Rights

The Centre for Information Rights (CIR) is based in the Department of Law, Economics and Accounting and Finance in the Faculty of Business, Law and Digital Technologies and linked with the Department of Digital Technologies. CIR recognises that the term 'information rights' spans a wide range of live issues, including: machine learning, artificial intelligence, cybersecurity, the 'Internet of Things', information sharing, freedom of information (FOI), privacy, data protection, cyberlaw, intellectual property, e-disclosure and Government open data.
