Research centres

Our research centres span several departments and reflect how we collaborate with researchers from different subject areas. Our centres enable us to work across disciplines to tackle major problems that face computer science.

Assuring Autonomy International Programme

The Assuring Autonomy International Programme is a £12m initiative funded by Lloyd’s Register Foundation and the University of York to lead research, training and standards in the safety of robotics and autonomous systems (RAS).

Digital Creativity Labs (DC Labs)

Digital Creativity Labs is a world centre of excellence for impact driven research in games, interactive media and the rich space where they converge.

Quantum Communications Hub

Led by the University of York, the five-year £24m Quantum Communications Hub aims to deliver quantum communications systems that enable secure transactions and transmissions of data across a range of users in real-world applications. This includes work on quantum cryptography and sensing.

York Cross-disciplinary Centre for Systems Analysis (YCCSA)

York Cross-disciplinary Centre for Systems Analysis brings together researchers from different departments to develop novel mathematical, computational and analytical methods and tools for the analysis and modelling of complex systems.

York Interdisciplinary Centre for Cyber Security 

The York Interdisciplinary Centre for Cyber Security aims to bring together expertise across the University of York and internationally to address current and potential cyber security challenges. 


YorRobots is an institution-wide initiative bringing together researchers and practitioners with an interest in robotics and autonomous systems, and their applications.
