BT joins KMi Club

BT has joined the growing list of household names sponsoring KMi research. In late February 1997 a contract was signed between the Open University and BT Research Labs to foster collaboration on the construction of a Virtual Science Laboratory.

Professor Tom Vincent, head of the Multimedia Enabling Technologies group, conducted negotiations with Chris Fowler of BT, and clinched the deal for a project which will be headed at the Open University end by Research Fellow Dr. Peter Whalley
