Open University and e2v open Centre for Electronic Imaging
The Open University and e2v have opened the e2v Centre for Electronic Imaging (CEI) at the university's Milton Keynes campus. The centre will be dedicated to the research and development of advanced technologies for electronic image sensing and provide knowledge exchange between the UK technology industry and the academic world. The collaboration will see The Open University and e2v investing £3m in the UK knowledge economy over five years in new research activity through the e2v CEI.
The joint research centre (CEI) will focus on the development of technology opportunities in space and terrestrial imaging, with plans to extend to the scope to health and environmental applications.
