In 2012, UCL has renewed agreements with Arius3D Canada for continuing use of Arius3D scanning technology and software. This successful partnership, first developed in 2006, has stimulated 3D scanning research across the university, and has particularly encouraged development of Digital Humanities and Heritage, through online 3D images and Virtual Exhibitions. The partnership allows for funding of additional UCL Petrie Museum staff, who are currently using the equipment to create apps and software, which allow visitors to view and manipulate artefacts in 3D; the technology has also assisted in restoration and exhibition design. In 2011, Arius3D was awarded the UCL Enterprise SME Partner of the Year Award.
