Who we are

Forum core members

Henley research centres

These are existing centres that are collaborating on digital leadership and promoting the Forum.

Informatics Research Centre

Part of Henley Business School at the University of Reading, The Informatics Research Centre (IRC) provides a centre of gravity for interdisciplinary and collaborative research, and knowledge transfer in Informatics. The Centre defines informatics as 'the study of the creation, management and utilisation of information in scientific and economic activities.'

The IRC benefits from input of knowledge and expertise from various subject fields, including Biodiversity, Business Management, Economics, Information acquisition and assimilation, Intelligent Pervasive Spaces, Computer Science, Cognitive Science and Systems Engineering, across a number of Schools and beyond.

Henley Centre for Entrepreneurship

The Henley Centre for Entrepreneurship (HCfE) was established in 2007 with a remit to provide entrepreneurship education within Henley Business School and across the University of Reading, to conduct high quality research in the field, and to engage externally with the local business community and public organisations.

The HCfE coordinates and conducts a range of activities, including the teaching of University-wide entrepreneurship modules, the provision of extracurricular initiatives (ranging from the business incubator, and the student Entrepreneurship Society to the Ideafest business idea competition), supporting local SMEs to grow as well as offering its students the opportunity to learn, pursue placements and projects and improve their employability.
