Collaborative projects within Science and Technology attract judges’ attention
Two of Anglia Ruskin University’s Knowledge Transfer programmes have been shortlisted as finalists for the Lord Stafford Awards, East of England.
The two projects shortlisted are the Sancton School – The Learning Needs Profiler (LNP) – Project, led by Professor Eamon Strain and Angela Barry, Faculty of Science and Technology; and Air Pollution Products and Systems – Rotary Atomiser – Project, led by Professor Hassan Shirvani and Dr Ahad Ramezanpour, Faculty of Science and Technology.
Both projects have already been subject to field visits by the judging panel for the Awards. The winners will be announced at the Gala Dinner on Tuesday 31 March which is being held at the Helmore Building and Mumford Theatre, Cambridge.
The Lord Stafford Awards were developed in 1997 to recognise and encourage the development of collaborative relationships between Businesses and Universities. The Awards offer participants the chance to be acclaimed as regional innovators. By bringing together the wealth of excellent research and development work produced by Universities and diverse business enterprises, the awards seek to generate increased competitiveness and knowledge transfer.
