Only one bit of news this week – the University of Bristol, along with the Universities of West of England, Bath, Exeter and Cardiff have been awarded a huge grant from the Arts and Humanities Research Council to start up the Research and Enterprise in Arts and Creative Technologies Hub (REACT) for Bristol, the South West of England and South Wales. The hub will promote collaborative projects between university researchers and private enterprise and ours was one of those used in the bid as an example. We were a tiny component of a hugely complex bid but I think we held up well – and a screenshot from the model is now on the University of Bristol homepage announcing the success. You can read more about the news at:

This could be great for us – not just because we could get direct funding for the ‘bot phase of our research but because this could give us the opportunity to work in a much wider regional network. Very excited!……course, we haven’t finished the last phase yet. Better get moving…
