Horizon Digital Economy Research Institute
Horizon is a Research Institute at The University of Nottingham engaged in Digital Economy Research.
Established in 2009, this venture represents an initial £40 million investment by Research Councils UK (RCUK), the University of Nottingham and over 100 academic and industrial partners; in both a Research Hub and Doctoral Training Centre within the RCUK Digital Economy programme.
Horizon research focuses on the role of ‘always on, always with you’ ubiquitous computing technology in the Digital Economy.
Building on the Digital Britain plan, Horizon are investigating the technical developments needed if electronic information is to be controlled, managed and harnessed — for example, to develop new products and services for societal benefit.
