University of Essex (UoE)

iGGi Essex is located two miles from the historic city of Colchester and set in over 200 acres of beautiful parkland.

iGGi is a consortium of four universities or sites: the University of York (York), Queen Mary University of London (QMUL), Goldsmiths, University of London (Goldsmiths), and the University of Essex (Essex).

iGGi received funding in two phases: “iGGi 1” funded the first five cohorts of researchers across York, QMUL, Goldsmiths, and Essex and PGR intake spans from 2014 to 2018; “iGGi 2” started in 2019 with funding for a further five cohorts, this time only at York and QMUL.

One of the "Essex iGGis" from the iGGi 1 funding round is still in the process of completing their PhD work. Essex is therefore still listed here as an active iGGi site, even though future iGGi main events such as the iGGi Conference and the iGGi Game Jam will take place at one of the iGGi 2 sites, i.e., either York or QMUL. iGGi Essex is part of the University of Essex's School of Computer Science and Electronic Engineering.
