A team formed by a collaboration of Speech and Language researchers and human-computer interaction researchers here at City, has been recognised for their exceptional contribution to promoting the use of technology to help keep us healthy, focusing on the language disorder, aphasia. Aphasia is a condition that develops typically after a stroke, that results in difficulty speaking, reading, writing or understanding language. This is part of Universities UK’s MadeAtUni campaign, which brings to life the impact of universities on everyday lives.
The outstanding stories from this campaign highlight the importance of university research beyond the educational purposes, reaching a wide societal impact.
