Rapid Prototyping: the first step in any digital project; a process of quickly creating a preliminary model of a digital object or product. It enables you to test the feasibility of ideas and helps clarify a project’s requirements.
Sandpit: a place for playing, for building things up and knocking things down, for learning and for fun.
The Centre for Data, Culture and Society aims to build capacity for data-led research and support digital research projects.
We are looking for humanities and social science researchers who want to explore early stage digital research projects with the support of our experienced team of researchers and technologists.
Our team includes research software engineers and academics with experience across a range of project types from large scale text mining, to building interactive maps, to creating linked data, to network visualisations. We want to support our community to experiment with digital methods and tools, and to develop ideas into realistic projects. It might be a completely new research project, or part of an ongoing project, something you think would be quick and easy, or the beginning of a grand plan. You don’t need to have everything fully worked out, just an initial idea which we can help you develop.
