CIM is awarded funding from the Participatory Research Fund for urban research projects

Two urban research projects led by CIM members of staff have received seed funding from the Participatory Research Fund. The aim of the fund is to support the development of pioneering participatory research.

The awarded projects are “Investigating the effects of street features and sunlight conditions on people’s perception of walkability through a participatory experiment”, led by Tessio Novack (CIM) in collaboration with Carlos Camara Menoyo (CIM) and James Tripp (Warwick, IDG), and “Exploring hybrid digital-physical prompts for participant engagement on more-than- human data interactions in the smart city", led by Cagatay Turkay (CIM) with collaborators Sara Heitlinger (City, University of London), Rachel Clarke (Newcastle), and Graham McNeill (independent researcher).

Want to learn more about how online recommendations and classifications work?

We're looking for participants who will use Big Sister for two weeks and allow us to interview them about the experience. We want to explore how people feel about their data being collected and used to make algorithmic recommendations and predictions.
