Our research

Our work focuses on the challenges around digital inclusion, digital poverty and marginalised groups.

This research cluster draws extensively on the expertise of two of Loughborough’s primary and longest established Research Centres - the Centre for Research in Social Policy and the Centre for Research in Communication and Culture.

Our Stakeholder Advisory Group includes Abby Brown (Video Games and Esports - DCMS); Chris Gale (Head of Social Impact - eBay) and Saman Taherimoud (The Entrepreneurial Refugee Network). 
Postgraduate researchers and our partners will be joining a wide range of exciting intellectual networks and events - benefitting from some of the latest cutting-edge research on vibrant and inclusive communities at the University.
