In a challenging year for the Research & Innovation team I am pleased to report a number of signiicant successes, for which I want to thank all those in BBC R&I for their excellent focus and commitment during an uncertain and dificult period. We are in the early stages of a migration process, which involves leaving Kingswood Warren and becoming an integral part of the BBC’s FM&T divisional home at White City.

We have made signiicant changes to the organisational structure and now have two functional groups within BBC R&I – namely Broadcast and Future Media.

Future Media’s long term focus is the new Media City at Salford in 2011/2012, where we will be an integral part of a Future Media Research institute together with partners from industry and academia
