The Centre’s work is also informed and supported by the Challenge Panel, a group of leading researchers in corpus linguistics who have agreed to contribute their expertise to the endeavour of extending corpus linguistics to engage with a broad range of social science questions.

Finally, the College of Project Ambassadors is a user group composed of members associated with organisations which are key consumers of academic research. Each critically interacts with, and assists in disseminating outputs from, specific projects within the Centre.
