  • BT is unique in having an end to end innovation process which starts with scouting and watching latest innovations in the markets worldwide (including Silicon Valley, China and Israel), progresses with prototyping and ends with successful new products and services and real world tangibles.  We use a mixture of scouting, partnerships with leading academic institutions, partnerships with leading industry players, and our own R&D to create, trial and launch new products and services to market.  Ours is a model that has been watched with interest by others in the industry, and we have provided advice to partners, competitors and academics on best practice.BT spent £1,177m (over 5% of revenue) in R&D in 2009-2010 to support innovation.In 08/09 BT was the 3rd largest investor in the UK in any sector (08/09 as this is the latest year for which comparative figures are available)Research is a highly diverse and highly qualified team with 39 nationalities, almost everyone having at least a first degree, significant numbers with 2nd and 3rd degrees and a few with 4. Research team members hold 8 visiting professorship positions.

  • 6. AHRC and BT - background
    BT has a long standing university programme
    Established links to EPSRC and ESRC communities – fixed and mobile networks, software, services etc. but no real links into AHRC’s community
    Meeting between CEO of AHRC and BT’s Director or Research - explore a “strategic relationship” between BT and AHRC
    Past EU collaborative work on virtual/ augmented reality for museums, digital heritage etc. Growing interest in user-generated content.
    Need to look more beyond the technology – need to understand the sector far better and gain insight into the personal, social and cultural contexts of different stakeholders.
    Workshop at BT – AHRC and 35 academics and practitioners – “Open Space” conversations, leading to definition of a new research area of broad interest – Digital Heritage
  • 7. Developing the Model
    What do we want to achieve? What do we need to achieve it? Who do we want to involve? What are our limitations?
    Encourage new ways of working
    Flexible knowledge exchange opportunities
    Industry partners and cultural organisations
    Money and time
    Research Networking!
  • 8. The Projects
    5 Digital Heritage Research Networking Projects with varied interests, approaches and outcomes.
    1 community of researchers.
    Inclusive - exciting range of partners
    Collaborative - our Network of Networks
    Attractive -interest leveraged due to BT support
    Innovative – new applications for existing technologies
    Ongoing – new projects under development
  • 9. Hidden Histories UCL, Science Museum, BT and Illumina Digital
    The varied perspectives of those involved with the network have been both the major positive and the biggest challenge of the project.
    BT contributed archive material, knowledge, contacts and the time of BT Archives’ volunteers.
    Illumina Digital used the ideas and technologies developed through this project to release other products
    The team are keen to develop Hidden Histories further and are investigating future funding opportunities
    Working towards a tangible outcome academically rewarding

  • 10. Benefits to BT of research networking with AHRC community
    Ideas and proposals BT can be part of stemming from research networks
    Opportunities beyond the 5 networks
    New links to UC Falmouth leading to new research opportunities on superfast broadband
    New links to Glamorgan leading to involvement in Welsh univeristies network on Digital Heritage
    Project on digital storytelling with Glamorgan as part of Digital Wales Research Hub
    Technology trial with Science Museum and Goldsmiths– Films of Fact – triggered by demo at original AHRC workshop – exploration of using Shape-Shifted TV tools for interactive film-based installations in a museum setting
  • 11. Wider benefits of research networking with the AHRC community
    Prospect of exciting and compelling applications for next generation broadband – applications to foster sense of place and community
    Stronger links with existing HEI partners, and new links with new partners
    Involvement in new networks
    International dimension – US universities
    New research council partnership – AHRC very helpful and easy to work with!
    Early sight of emerging AHRC thinking and direction
    Don’t expect all the benefits to accrue at the end of the research networks – we should look again in 3 years
