  • (Usual stuff) – the research and development of technology within the main research settings of the project is still ongoing. In parallel to the major work being undertaken in the settings though, we have also been running undergraduate research student programmes during the summer vacations, where students have developed lightweight web applications to solve or support applied problems in their ‘home’ disciplines..
