Organisation profile

Organisation profile

IT Services R&D / ILRT is the research and development division of the University of Bristol IT Services. We are a multidisciplinary group of around 30 people with a mission to explore, prototype and pilot emerging learning and research technologies.

We have built up considerable expertise in web standards and technologies, turning abstract technical developments into practical tools and applications. We also have a strong track record in project management, training and consultancy. Our mix of full and part-time staff bring a blend of expert technical and 'social' knowledge, professionalism and creativity to delivering University and national services and projects.

Our work spans developments within the University and externally, allowing skills and knowledge to flow between and benefit both. We provide technical development, evaluation and web design services for University projects and external clients, mainly in the public, voluntary and education sectors.

Our work falls into three main areas:

  • University systems
  • Services
  • Projects
  • Partnerships

We partner regularly with academic and support colleagues in a range of forward-looking projects funded by the JISC and Research Councils, to explore web and other technologies and their application for research and future learning and management processes.
