UKCRC was founded in November 2002 and is an expert panel of the IET, BCS, The Chartered Institute for IT, and the Council of Professors and Heads of Computing (CPHC).
Its members are internationally leading computing researchers drawn from both academia and industry. UKCRC aims to promote the vitality, quality, and impact of computing research in the UK.
By contributing to policy formation within these three key national bodies, UKCRC enables UK Computing Research to speak with a single voice.
UKCRC presents its views to Government, Parliamentary Committees, and other agencies through pro-active submissions and responses to consultations.
