Computational Systems

The NRP has established a centre of excellence in computational science and informatics in the North East of Scotland, combining the complementary strengths existing within the Department of Computing Science at the University of Aberdeen (UoA), the Division of Applied Computing at the University of Dundee (UoD), and the School of Computing, at the Robert Gordon University (RGU). The institute aims to deliver world-class research and technology transfer in a number of strategic areas likely to impact on the Scottish economy. It will have sufficient critical mass to compete with leading centres in Europe and North America.


The institute will perform basic and applied research in the following areas:

  • Mobile, Distributed & Networked Systems
  • Human-Computer Interaction
  • Intelligent Systems
  • Knowledge Transfer
