University in shortlist for THE Awards
The nominations for the Times Higher Educations’ fifth Awards ceremony has been unveiled and the University has been shortlisted in two categories.
These are Outstanding Engineering Research Team of the Year and the Outstanding Contribution to Leadership Development.
The Outstanding Engineering Research Team of the Year category is sponsored by BAE Systems, and recognises the team whose innovative research has made or has the potential to make a far-reaching impact on its field and to catch the public's imagination. Professor John Fisher's team in the Institute of Mechanical and Biological Engineering (iMBE) has been shortlisted for this award. iMBE combines two distinct strands of work; the country's largest bioengineering unit and a world-leading research centre for artificial joint replacements. Both are dedicated to creating new therapies to improve our quality of life as we get older.
The Outstanding Contribution to Leadership Development award is made in association with the Leadership Foundation for Higher Education, and seeks to recognise and reward imaginative schemes that foster leadership development at any level of management - from governors to departments. Penny Hatton's team in Staff and Departmental Development Unit (SDDU) has been nominated for this award. The development of a leadership and management standard (LMS) is an innovative approach to leadership development that will facilitate achievement of the University's vision and goals.
