This morning, I received an email from (who is now) my assigned research supervisor giving their approval for a research masters degree with Clique Space as the subject matter.
Excellent stuff. This university (my Alma Mater - because I live here) is a good one. I am hoping this will give me a good incubation environment where the concept's efficacy can be tested. Should this idea prove successful, I hope the university will be able to reduce obstacles to commercial development.
