How we work with research institutions and researchers

We work with researchers from around the globe to build evidence in our core research areas.

Evidence-based research is central to our approach, and Ada works with researchers from around the globe to produce publications, co-host events, and co-create other forms of novel and collaborative learnings relating to our core research areas.

Our team of legal, public policy, social science, philosophy, economics, culture, technology and participation experts convene workshops with industry representatives and conduct research on the sociotechnical impacts of digital technologies. See our Themes and Projects.

There is a range of ways the Ada Lovelace Institute works with academics and researchers, including:

  • Collaborating on joint research projects
  • Convening workshops or public engagement initiatives
  • Participating in Ada events
  • Publishing guest posts on our blog

In 2020, Ada launched the JUST AI programme to bring together scholars from a range of academic disciplines and develop an integrated approach to ethics in practice. Led by Associate Professor Alison Powell at the London School of Economics LSE, JUST AI offers open lab events to share research and publications, hosts working groups around pressing ethical issues, and offers short-term research fellowships for emerging scholars.


JUST AI is an independent network of researchers and practitioners committed to understanding the social and ethical value of data and AI.
