Since taking up my new post as PVC in January I have been sending out messages of congratulations and good luck each week to all those either awarded or submitting a Research & Enterprise bid. I intend to continue this practice but also to make use of the blog in order to do this. It is important in my view to celebrate the submission of new Research & Enterprise bids and wish our colleagues good luck!
I am a week behind so here with a double dose. For the week ending the 18 March I would like to wish Elizabeth Rosser, Janet Scammell, Ian Donaldson, Sara White and Mel Hughes of HSC good luck with their Nuffield Foundation bid and I am pleased to acknowledge the success of Karen Rees and Keith Brown in being awarded various recent bids from regional County Councils and NHS Trusts. Ross Hill in ApSci has been successful with a bid to UK Space Agency and Holger Schutkowski, Browen Russell and Richard Stillman have also all put in recent bids. Richard’s bid for work on the Severn Barrage is particularly significant. Finally I would like to draw particular attention to Janet Dickinson’s success with an EPSRC grant and Clive Allen and Barry Surman are to be congratulated with respect to two KTP Schemes awarded this week.
For the week ending the 25 March I would like to acknowledge a large clutch of bids from HSC. Good luck are due to: Catherine Angell, Sara Crabtree, Fiona Cowdell, Carol Bond and Clive Andrews. The latter contract to the NHS South West is particularly noteworthy. The following people in HSC had bids awarded this week: Joanne Holmes, Jaqui Hewitt-Taylor, Keith Brown, Clive Andrews, and Peter Thomas which is all great news! Richard Gordon put in a bid for a provision of a short course in SoT and Fabian Homberg (BS) submitted a small grant to the British Academy.
