Connected Nation blog
Each week from October through to December 2015, we will be featuring a new story written by a researcher on their work supported by the Research Councils. We hope that these stories give you a sense of how research is contributing to making the UK a safer, more trustworthy and more enjoyable place to live in a digital and connected world. In such a short space of time, we can only show a tiny snapshot of all the great work that we are supporting. However we hope that these stories encourage you to find out more about how research could help you and to follow us or contribute to the conversation at #ConnectedNationUK.
