Crucible Network for Research in Interdisciplinary Design

Crucible is a research network that originated in the University of Cambridge in 2001, and has since become the largest organization in the world dedicated to promoting rigorous research collaboration between technologists and researchers in the Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences (AH&SS). The main focus of this collaboration is on design as a meeting point for widely differing research disciplines. Crucible activities include the establishment of new research programmes, training of researchers, input to policy bodies, and identification of suitable funding sources for research in interdisciplinary design. Crucible provides both a scientific and organisational framework for this research.

Why the name? The crucible has always been a melting pot for valuable materials, the origin of new alloys, materials of innovation. We believe that the post-industrial crucible must be a place where knowledge and ideas are blended and tempered.

Crucible Network Members

One of the long term goals of Crucible is to support the creation of an international network of researchers and educators having shared interests. The focus of this network is on collaboration between technologists and arts, humanities and social science researchers, leading to reflective research in interdisciplinary design.

Crucible coordination activities are currently carried out by Alan Blackwell (Computer Laboratory), David Good (Dept of Psychology) and Nathan Crilly (Engineering Design Centre).

Core contributors to the overall Crucible agenda have included Rachel Hewson, James Leach and Lee Wilson

An overview of academic disciplines can be seen in a list of Crucible Network Members grouped by Cambridge department.

A complete list of 281 participants in the Crucible network can be found on the page Category:People, along with a separate list of 194 advisors: Category:Advisors (see also Category:Students and Category:Clients).

Collaborative Projects

Crucible is a network, not an institute. Our approach has been to establish, facilitate and maintain collaboration between academics whose expertise can contribute to the goal of interdisciplinary design research. This has resulted in a matrix of connections: diverse projects, each structured in accordance with the skills and experience of the researchers involved, and a broad range of researchers both inside and outside the University. Crucible involvement has ranged from direct management of local teams to coordination and advisory input on large national and international initiatives.

A full list of 195 Crucible collaborations can be viewed here: Category:Projects

We have grouped projects into a number of over-arching themes: Category:Themes

Events and Programmes

Public engagement with the Crucible agenda is extended via a substantial programme of interdisciplinary seminars and conferences.
