ICT4D is an interdisciplinary research centre which draws draws on the expertise of staff, postgraduates and undergraduates in the academic Departments and Schools of Geography, Computer Science, Management, Mathematics (Information Security Group) and the New Political Communication Unit in Politics and International Relations, as well as in the Information Services Department and the Educational Development Centre.

We are committed to undertaking the highest possible quality of research in the field of Information and Communication Technologies for Development, and making the results of this available freely to the global community. We do this primarily in the interests of poor people and marginalised communities, wherever they may be found.

In 2007, ICT4D was awarded the Status of a UNESCO Chair in ICT4D. As well as research, we undertake teaching at undergraduate and postgraduate levels and contribute to the delivery of focused short courses on all aspects of ICT4D. Members of the Collective also provide consultancy services in the field of ICT4D.

We welcome collaborative work with colleagues across the world who share our core objectives, and wish to establish partnerships with us to deliver practical ICT4D activities that will empower poor people.
