The Cambridge Centre for Research in Arts, Social Sciences and Humanities (CRASSH) was established in the same year as Crucible, and like Crucible, has a strategic focus on interdisciplinary research. Although CRASSH does not have a specific focus on technology, the Directors and Fellows of CRASSH have collaborated with Crucible on technological themes from the outset. CRASSH operations are managed by Catherine Hurley, who has contributed to many Crucible projects, in particular Interdisciplinarity and Innovation, which was managed from CRASSH.
CRASSH is the host organisation for the Cambridge Digital Humanities Initiative, a cross-school seed funding programme that is developing awareness of Digital Humanities research in Cambridge.
