RIX Research is a research and development centre committed to realising the benefits of new media for people with intellectual disabilities. We are a nationally recognised centre of excellence that explores ways of using web & multimedia technologies to empower people with intellectual disabilities and improve their lives. We do this through a wide range of project work that crosses the fields of education, health and social care.
RIX Research is part of RIX Research and Media at the University of East London and is complemented and supported by a sister entity, RIX Media. Products that have been successfully prototyped and developed through RIX Research can be made available to the market under the banner of RIX Media. This helps us make the benefits of our research as widely accessible as possible in a way that is realistic and sustainable.
RIX Research and Media initially grew out of specialist project research at the University of East London (UEL) and was originally established at the RIX Research Centre at University in 2001.
