Research and Infrastructure

CiCS is an innovative and influential department pursuing excellence in a diverse range of IT and business services designed to support learning, teaching, and research at the University of Sheffield. These services are underpinned by networking, storage, computer servers, software, and information security. This ecosystem enables the University of Sheffield to broaden the horizons of its research and accelerate researcher productivity. Our vision is to move forward to a more integrated and simplified provision which promotes and facilitates collaborative working and provides data across the Institution that is fit for purpose, satisfies FAIR data principles (Findability, Accessibility, Interoperability, Reusability) and provides comprehensive reporting solutions. We aim to promote the use of artificial intelligence and machine learning to transform the data generated and accessed by our research community to enhance our research outcomes and improve the impact of our research.
