Happy New Year and welcome to the latest edition of the Rix Research & Media newsletter. Our newsletter is designed to keep our friends and colleagues up to date and give new readers a snapshot of our work at the Rix Centre at the University of East London.

Some of the highlights in this edition are our plans for the Rix Wiki and the pursuit of our new EasySurvey tool in partnership with KIM Software. We are very excited and optimistic about what we can achieve through the course of 2019. We hope you will enjoy the inspiring stories captured and share our positivity about the exciting ways in which new digital tools can transform peoples’ lives.
