|Canadian Heritage has announced the winners of well over half of its New Media Research Networks Fund, accounting for $5.64 million of the available $8 million in the envelope intended to encourage partnerships in new media R&D (CNM, Aug. 21/02). The winning projects will be funded for two years through the 2003-2004 fiscal year to study everything from teleconferencing to accessibility to 3D rendering. It's too soon, however, to say when another call for letters of intent might be made to disburse the remaining funds, says Canadian Culture Online Program (CCOP) director Ruth Bacon.
