About Us

The University of Southampton became a University Partner of The Alan Turing Institute in 2018 with all activities being coordinated by the Web Science Institute.

All new universities joining the Turing network have been admitted based on the excellence of their research and its alignment with the Institute’s research interests, their ability to bring new expertise and opportunities which add to the core strengths of the Institute and its existing partners, and their willingness to contribute financially to the Institute.

Southampton researchers will work together alongside the Institute’s industry, government and third sector partners to spearhead cutting-edge research and apply this research to real-world problems, with the goal to create lasting effects for science, society and the world we live in.

We are a pioneering world-leader in computer, data and web science and as a university partner of The Alan Turing Institute we seek to further expand our capabilities in harmony with other world-leaders in these fields.
