DEN Theme 4: New collaborative initiatives

Through this theme the DEN supports a flexible programme of specialist training and technology-focused, themed student-led events. This will build upon the culture of collaborative working already established in various disciplines such as Computer Science.

The new collaborative initiatives theme will also enhance the quality of training available to Digital Economy postgraduate students through activities such as:

  • Technology-focused development activities such as Hack and Maker events.
  • Open calls for collaboration focused particularly on encouraging student-led multi-CDT specialist training events.
  • Bespoke DEN workshops running alongside other established conferences.

Deliverables so far:

  • DE Researchers DIY Makers Colloquium, Newcastle University, April 2014.
  • Leading Together in the Digital Economy, July 2015, London
  • Interdisciplinary Games and Human Values, October 2015, London (delivered at CHIPLAY 2015 conference)
  • Exploring Common Values: Diving Deeply into the Digital Frontier, Tiree, October 2016
  • Double Dabble: A Feminist Dy of Making workshop, February 2017, Newcastle
  • Data Publics Conference, March/April 2017, Lancaster University
