UCL announced a strategic partnership with BBC Research and Development in November 2012. Led by Professor Anthony Finkelstein in UCL Engineering Sciences, the partnership aims to bring together some of the brightest minds in the UK to discuss and tackle the challenges for digital media and the creative industry at large.
Over the next four years, the new partnership between BBC and UCL will focus on an ambitious programme of research work that seeks to advance state-of-the-art communications technologies, Internet research, content production, user experience (UXD) and access services.
As part of the partnership, the BBC and UCL will share facilities and resources, and create new opportunities for students, graduates, staff and third parties with a range of sponsored studentships for doctorate level research, internships, student placements and a staff exchange programme. This initiative will form the foundation for future collaboration with other academic and industrial partners and as such will act as a catalyst in accelerating UK performance in this sector.
