Linking Development & Innovation With Mainstream Activities


The boundaries between mainstream traditional provision of ICT support for institutions and ICT research and development activities are starting to blur. There is a need to capitalise on the strengths of both areas and to ensure that they work in synergy with each other. The Institute for Learning and Research Technology (ILRT) consists of ICT-related externally-funded projects and services, but it is also part of the University’s ‘mainstream’ Information Services division. The talk will outline how at Bristol we are trying to ‘join-up’ our approach to ICT use and development within the University and will report on the VIOLET project, which exemplifies our approach.
