Consumer Data Research Centre

About the
Consumer Data Research Centre

The CDRC is working with consumer-related organisations to open up their data resources; to our trusted researchers. This enables them to carry out important social and economic research.

The CDRC was established by the UK Economic and Social Research Council as part of phase two of the Big Data Network to:

  • Contribute towards ensuring the future sustainability of UK research using consumer data
  • Support consumer related organisations to maximise their innovation potential
  • Drive economic growth

We are bringing together world-class researchers from the University of Leeds, University College London, University of Liverpool and the University of Oxford to offer a range of expert services to a wide range of users.
