Now uWaterloo has announced a further $10 million, contributed by Waterloo-based software giant Open Text Corporation, for which the new institute will be named. The centre will bring together researchers and students from around the world to focus on digital media applications and ways to commercialize this research into a rapidly-evolving private sector. uWaterloo News Release | Open Text News Release
