Open Day: Institute of Digital Futures

The Institute of Digital Futures (IDF) pulls together expertise from across the three academic colleges at Brunel to deliver on the “Digital” Strategic Challenge Area of Brunel Research Strategy 2030 while putting user communities at the heart of the development processes, thereby enhancing the global citizen’s quality of life.
