New role, new project, new website, new start

Writing about web page

“Its been a while since I blogged on here” is this or something similar the most common opening line to blogs? Well this is true for me.

As the title says, I have started a new project here at the University of Warwick, moving away from my WMCCM project. WMCCM was concerned about helping small business with eBusiness adoption and very successful I think at it. 6,000 SMEs online etc etc

However, things move on and new challenges and a change can only be a good thing.

The Warwick Digital Laboratory (WDL) or Digi Lab is a new new significant programme for the University of Warwick led by WMG. Whereas WMCCM was about eBusiness, the Digi Lab is about eBusiness plus nine other areas of specialist digital technologies. A bit from our standard material:

“The Warwick Digital Lab is a £50 Million pound initiative to facilitate major collaborative research opportunities, create effective knowledge transfer between academia and industry and generate new knowledge and skills with an impact on business, society and the economy”

So its very busy around here ahead of the offical opening of the project and the ramp up of the SME programme which I am the Head. We move into the new building on the 7th July 2008.

One of the initial things are doing is building a full web 2.0 website (whatever that means) for the Digi Lab and a tender will be released soon. So watch this space!
