New research centres to transform the way we live in Digital Britain

New research centres to transform the way we live in Digital Britain

Aberdeen University has won a £12.4 million bid, becoming one of three new Digital Hubs that will research and develop digital technology to transform the lives of people in rural communities

The Digital Hubs are part of the RCUK's broader digital economy programme. Their mission builds on plans to provide universal connectivity to broadband in the UK. There wil be three new hubs in total, with the 2 others based in Nottingham and Newcastle Universities. This is the biggest investment ever made by the research councils in creating a Digital Britain.

The award was announced today by Lord Drayson, Minister for Science and Innovation who said : "New technologies can transform our quality of life. The hubs will develop new technologies utilising wireless networks and GPS, which will deliver hi-tech digital solutions across many sectors. They will create jobs, improve public services such as health and transport, reduce waste and bring digital revolution into people's lives for the first time."

Professor Gorry Fairhurst is one of the 8 Aberdeen University Principle Investigators - he will be leading Internet Engineering activities and research into new digital communications services to rural communities.
