The APT STAIRS Project is a JISC funded project led by the RVC and involving all 6 Bloomsbury Colleges. The first phase of the project has now been successfully completed and you can read about the outcomes and achievements here.

The concept of Appropriate and Practical Technologies has inspired a number of second generation initiatives. One area of particular interest is the APT for Africa programme working with mobile phones to collect data and provide access to local knowledge through Android mobile phones.

The e-Media Unit is playing a leading role in coordinating these developments working closely with partners in industry, Africa and other universities. For more information, please contact Nick Short on
