Established in 2006, the CADRE Research Centre's overall concern lies in the effect of art and design upon society. The social interaction inherent in new interactive technologies, the theory and practice of cultural agency, and experiments in radical democracy and performative objects remain the hallmark of both the intellectual and practical research in all of our research groups.
In the RAE (2008) 10% of research by CADRE was rated as world leading, 25% as internationally excellent and 50% as internationally recognised.
The centre comprises readers, research professors, associates, research active staff and PhD students. Through the CADRE research clusters academics and artists are invited to give public lectures which are open to all university students, staff, and members of the public.

These five research groups provide the structure within CADRE for research and development. Knowledge transfer and interdisciplinary research are also essential components of our long-term income generation strategy.
