At the School of Cybernetics, we have a strong drive to develop research and education through collaboration. We believe ideas should flow easily into and out from the School. This is the path to meaningful innovation.
Our partnership projects bring cybernetics to a range of sectors, organisations and people who are also trying to think differently about the role of emerging technologies in shaping, building upon or intervene in the complex systems that make up our world. These partnerships are across many themes, issues, and disciplines. Our diverse collection of projects represent the broad application of cybernetics to challenges and opportunities in many areas.
