SPRITE+ brings together people involved in research, practice, and policy with a focus on digital contexts. We are a 'one stop shop' for engagement between academic and non-academic communities - a way for these communities to connect and a platform for building collaborations across the spectrum of issues relating to security, privacy, identity and trust. We are funded until 31 August 2027 by the Engineering and Physical Science Research Council as part of its Digital Economy programme (grant references EP/S035869/1 and EP/W020408/1)
SPRITE+ is led by a consortium of five universities: University of Manchester (lead institution), Imperial College London, Lancaster University, Queen’s University Belfast, and University of Southampton. Our Management Team is supported by a multi-disciplinary group of 140+ Expert Fellows and non-academic Project Partners. We currently we have 18 Partners from different sectors, including industry, government, law enforcement, and civil society.
