The university of the village: universities connecting with rural communities


Principal Investigator: Professor Michael Wilson
Co-investigators: Professor David Mark Frohlich, Hamish Fyfe
Collaborators: BT; University of Glamorgan; University of Surrey; communities in Cornwall, Surrey and Wales
Duration: From 2011 to 2012

This pilot project explored new modes of delivery, enhanced through Next Generation Access Broadband, and was interested to redraw the relationship between universities and rural communities and grant access to university outreach services for those communities. The project in St Agnes resulted in delivering a short film course to the participants who collaboratively made a film about their village. Project information including films can be found on the project’s web pages.
