Catalyst is a £1.9M project, funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPRSC), which brings together academics and communities to jointly imagine and build the next generation of tools for social change, and to explore innovative, bottom-up technology-mediated solutions to major problems in society.
Catalyst is an interdisciplinary research project, uniting teams of academics with community organisations, and reaching further afield by working with high-profile partners.
The three year project looks at how different communities use technology to make 'the world' a better place. And, in a series of sub-projects, communities and academics will together envision and build next generation tools more suited to the job.
