CfACTs is a Marie Sklodowska-Curie Action (MSCA) COFUND research centre, co-led by Prof Jian Chang and Prof Jian J Zhang, of the Bournemouth University’s National Centre for Computer Animation (BU NCCA); CfACTs runs from October 2020 to September 2025.
CfACTs will recruit six funded post-doctoral researchers (CfACTs fellows) and embed them in UK creative technology companies for up to two years, to deliver multi-disciplinary research focused on industrial applications related to three BU Strategic Investment Areas: Animation, Simulation and Visualisation; Medical Science and Assistive Technology. This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie grant agreement No 900025.
The research fellows will be employees of BU and embark on a two-year programme of world leading digital creative technology research and training, provided by CfACTs and its industry Partner Organisations (POs); including SIE- Playstation Framestore and Axis Studios. Research fellows will have an opportunity to be seconded into one or more CfACTs POs for the majority of their two-year programme, with full academic support, to gain cross-sectoral experience.
Three of the research projects for CfACTs are listed below. To find out more please visit the CfACTs Webpage.
