Our community

CDCS is at the heart of a vibrant community in Edinburgh and beyond.

We work across the College of Arts Humanities and Social Sciences, and within the Edinburgh Futures Institute, where we are part of a research, education and innovation ecosystem that includes research centres, specialist hubs and networks. We also collaborate with a wide network of partner organisations, nationally and internationally.
