Using Innovative solutions in digital pathology and Artificial Intelligence (AI) to increase the rate of cancer diagnosis and treatment.

Health Risks in Urban Slums

Tackling climate-related health risks in urban slums: analysis of the challenge of integrating local and scientific knowledge.

Challenging Inequalities

Contributing an understanding of inequality as a driver of vulnerability in an international development context.


Investigating the key challenges of governance for Anthropogenic Global Catastrophic Risk (AGCRs).

Mass-marketing fraud

This EPSRC project develops novel techniques to detect and prevent mass-marketing fraud (MMF).


PRISMA has delivered a toolkit for companies that aspire to develop innovative products and services with which genuine societal needs are addressed and a contribution is made to both environmental and economic sustainability. Warwick worked with Warwick Manufacturing Group on 3 pilot projects: in connected vehicles; synthetic biology; and secure data-storage and exchange.


MiRTLE is the world’s first, high performance, long range, low cost, standoff “concealed threat” detection system for the protection of citizens and critical infrastructure.


Improving communication tools for law enforcement to prevent violent radicalisation.


IERG (Tom Sorell and Duncan Hine) have contributed teaching material to a distance taught course offered by the Institute of Risk Management on Digital Risk Managment.


IDENTITY aims at consolidating the integration of multimedia forensics into forensic science. Multimedia forensics is concerned with the development of scientific methods to extract, analyse and categorize digital evidence derived from multimedia sources, such as imaging devices. For example, developing technologies to identify, categorise and classify the source of images and video, as well as to authenticate and verify the integrity of their content. Since the enabling technologies in multimedia forensics are similar to those used for identification and verification purposes in biometric forensics, the integration of these areas is seamless.

Moral Obligation, Epistemology and Public Health: The Case of Vaccine Hesitancy

This two-year project, funded by the AHRC and the German Research Council (DFG), considers philosophical issues related to the rationality of vaccine opposition and hesitancy, and the question of how science communication should address vaccine hesitancy, especially in the face of campaigns of misinformation.

Data Lakes: Emerging Ethical Issues

This is a pump-priming project, funded under a Call that seeks to prepare the ground for more UK Humanities research in Artificial Intelligence. It builds on the ethics research contributed by IERG to the Innovate-UK funded PathLAKE project in computational pathology. This project concerns the use of large pathology data sets to train and test algorithms cancer diagnostics, prognostics and tumour-grading.


(Strategies and Technologies for United and Resilient Critical Infrastructures and Vital Services in Pandemic Stricken Europe) is a major three-year project funded by Horizon Europe. The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the fact that pandemics and similar events are not only a threat to health but also represent a considerable risk to the interdependent critical infrastructures(CIs) upon which societies depend for their well-being. SUNRISE will facilitate the active collaboration of CIs across Europe to share best practices and jointly tackle future pandemics. This collaboration will result in a new stable working group for CI resilience to pandemics with at least 100 members. With a group of 4 CI authorities, 16 CI operators, 3 other CI stakeholders, 4 experts in social sciences and ethics, 2 experts in epidemiology and climate extremes, and 12 security researchers and software developers.


GEMS (Games as a Multi-layered Security threat) is an interdisciplinary, mixed-methods and cross-sectoral project bringing together academic researchers, AI specialists, policy experts and a range of police authorities from across Europe. The project aims to understand the contribution of the video-gaming ecosystem to the process of radicalisation, and to propose measures to prevent the radicalization process.
