Liverpool digital is at the heart of our research revolution.
At the University of Liverpool we are harnessing the digital revolution to take on some of the world’s greatest challenges.
From the sciences to the humanities, our research and education draws on the collision of data, connectivity, computing power, automation, virtual reality and analytics to create knowledge and innovation at scale.
Whether it is supporting surgical planning with Virtual Reality or encoding ethics into robots, the breadth of our expertise positions us to challenge orthodoxy and spark innovation. Our enabling approach to industrial partnerships helps us to quickly move from discovery to transformation.
Ours is a holistic approach. We understand the transformative potential of digital but also its societal, cultural and economic impact.
