From 2007-10 he was elected founding President of the European Association of Technology Enhanced Learning.
From 2008-12 Peter was the coordinator of STELLAR, the EU’s 7th Framework Network of Excellence in TEL. Peter's research group in the institute, prototypes the application of new technologies and media to learning.
Peter’s current research interests range widely across knowledge and media research. Three key threads are: telepresence; streaming media systems; and ubiquity.
