The LKL brings together 75 computer and social scientists from a very broad range of fields, including: education, sociology, culture and media, semiotics, knowledge engineering, information management, data mining, personalization and ubiquitous technologies. The LKL has a long track record in national and international research, with current projects totaling ~£6.5m/7.1M€.The lab has been involved in over 10 recent EU projects, co-coordinating both the WebLabs and Playground projects.
