Organisation profile

The Scottish Informatics and Computer Science Alliance (SICSA) is a collaboration of Scottish Universities whose goal is to develop and extend Scotland's position as a world leader in Informatics and Computer Science research and education.

We achieve this by working cooperatively rather than competitively, by providing mutual support and sharing facilities, by working closely with industry and government and by appointing and retaining world-class staff and research students in Scottish Universities.
