EDINBURGH IP/IT CENTRE WINS 5 MORE YEARS’ FUNDING FROM AHRC
The Edinburgh Law School Intellectual Property/Information Technology Law Research Centre, founded with the support of Shepherd & Wedderburn in 1999, was one of only two successful bidders for renewed funding from the Arts & Humanities Research Council, it was announced in January 2007. Having first gained AHRC Research Centre status in 2002, when funding of nearly a million pounds was obtained from the Council, the Centre will now be supported to the tune of nearly two million pounds until 2012. Professor Graeme Laurie will take over as Director in April 2007 as the new money kicks into place. For the Centre’s work see its website, http://www.law.ed.ac.uk/ahrc/, and note in particular its latest offering, the Personality Rights Database Wiki.
