RTÉ and WIT join forces for south-east research projects

Waterford-718x523Waterford Institute of technology (WIT) is teaming up with state broadcaster RTÉ to run a number of research projects in the region.

WIT and RTÉ will provide funding for a number of research programmes “of mutual interest” that will directly impact on broadcasting capabilities in the region.

The Irish language will be a focus, as one area of research will be multilingual broadcasting, while other areas, such as new technologies and how they impact on broadcasting and audiences, will also be included.

It’s a two-year plan, with the president of WIT, Prof Willie Donnelly, saying the institution was “delighted” to be part of the initiative, adding that the south-east is well positioned to lead this area of broadcast research.
