The Cultural Informatics research group based at the University of Brighton, undertakes research across a spectrum of interdisciplinary areas to support the development and use of digital collections. Research focuses on technical areas, including 3D virtual environments, archives and collections management systems, web and museum based interactive applications and language technologies; and non-technical areas, including testing, economic and social impact evaluation in support of the development of the cultural heritage sector and its opportunities in tourism, entertainment and education.
