Research Centres

Administrative Data Research Centre

The Administrative Data Research Group continues to work on projects previously supported by the Administrative Data Research Centre for England (ADRC-E).

AI3 Science Discovery Network

AI3SD Network+ (Artificial Intelligence and Augmented Intelligence for Automated Investigations for Scientific Discovery) is funded by the EPSRC and hosted by the University of Southampton and aims to bring together researchers looking to show how cutting edge artificial and augmented intelligence technologies can be used to push the boundaries of scientific discovery.

Centre for Geometry, Topology, and Applications

The Centre for Geometry, Topology, and Applications (CGTA) provides a focal point for research in geometric group theory, topology, homotopy theory and noncommutative geometry. An important aspect of their work is to identify opportunities for direct applications of pure mathematics in the natural sciences.

Centre for Machine Intelligence

The Centre for Machine Intelligence was initiated by the Department of Electronics and Computer Science and is a centre of expertise for Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, and Autonomous Systems. We work with industry, policy makers, and the general public to address both national and global challenges.


The University of Southampton has an established breadth and depth in Operational Research, Management Science and Information Systems. CORMSIS is one of the largest such groups in the UK, spanning Mathematical Sciences, Southampton Business School and Health Sciences.


Data Pitch

Data Pitch is a EU-funded open innovation programme bringing together corporate and public-sector organisations that have data with startups and SMEs that work with data. It is centered around a competition with several tracks which describe challenges, and a virtual accelerator programme (6 months) to help startups and SMEs develop solutions to meet these challenges.


EDISON is a EU-funded project whose aim is to help increase the number of Data Science professionals across Europe. The University of Southampton is one of its partners.

European Data Portal

The European Data Portal harvests the metadata of Public Sector Information available on public data portals across European countries. Information regarding the provision of data and the benefits of re-using data is also included.

European Data Science Academy

The European Data Science Academy (EDSA) was an H2020 EU project that ran between February 2015 and January 2018. The objective of the EDSA project was to deliver the learning tools that are crucially needed to close the skill gap in Data Science in the EU.


The Open Data Incubator for Europe (ODINE) was a 6-month incubator for open data entrepreneurs across Europe. The programme was funded with a £7.8m grant from the EU's Horizon 2020 programme and was delivered by seven partners.


The PETRAS Internet of Things Research Hub is a consortium of nine leading UK universities (including the University of Southampton) which will work together over the next three years to explore critical issues in privacy, ethics, trust, reliability, acceptability, and security. Funding for the Hub includes a £9.8 million grant from the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) which will be boosted by partner contributions to approximately £23 million in total. This project also runs in collaboration with IoTUK.


QROWD offers local government and transportation businesses innovative solutions to improve mobility, reduce traffic congestion and make navigation safer and more efficient. Better use of urban infrastructures and reduced travel times will improve the environment by curbing CO2 emissions – ultimately enhancing quality of life in European cities.

To achieve this, QROWD will integrate different sources of data – maximizing the value of Big Data in planning and managing urban traffic and mobility

Research Data Management

The University of Southampton Library offers a Research Data Management facility to all staff, researchers and students at the University of Southampton.


SOCIAM - the Theory and Practice of Social Machines was a major research programme funded by the EPSRC which aimed to deliver greater insight into understanding and building the next generation of 'social machines'. These are part-technical and part-human systems that are co-created and develop capabilities ranging from solving routine tasks to handling emergencies. The consortium included the University of Southampton,  the University of Oxford and the University of Edinburgh.

Southampton Statistical Sciences Research Institute (S3RI)

S3RI is a research institute focussed on core statistical methodologies with many direct applications, particularly in the social sciences, engineering, health and medicine. They provide specialist expertise to many companies and organisations worldwide; the results of our collaborations inform our teaching so students directly benefit from our world-leading international research.

Statistics Research Group

The Statistics Group carries out research of international standing in methodology and substantive applications and is based in Mathematical Sciences at the University of Southampton.

Web Observatory

Web Observatory is a system which gathers and links to data on the Web in order to answer questions about the Web, the users of the Web and the way that each affects the other. The University of Southampton has developed Web Observatory software for hosting and sharing relevant datasets and analytic apps; a number of inter-connected installations are available including the one at Southampton University.
