This week’s messages of good luck are due to Ann Bevan (HSC) who has submitted a first stage proposal to the BUPA Foundation’s Philip Poole Wilson Seedcorn Grants, to Gill Jordan (HSC) for applying for another contract with Pulse International to run the overseas nursing programme, to Joanne Holmes (HSC) who has submitted a bid to Partners in Care to run a nutrition course, to Clive Andrewes (HSC) for bidding for two PDU accreditations with Somerset Partnerships NHS Foundation Trust, and to Dave Parham (ApSci) who has submitted a large proposal to English Heritage to continue his marine archaeology research in the Swash Channel.
Congratulations to Rudy Gozlan and the Conservation Ecology and Environmental Sciences Group (ApSci) for winning an Erasmus Mundus award from the European Commission. The TECHNO project aims to develop cooperation between Asian and European HEIs through the exchange of students and staff. The project will start later this year and will contribute significantly to the research culture in ApSci. This is excellent news considering BU’s push to grow its European activity and international networking. Well done to Jonathan Wardle (MS) for securing 5 license renewals for CEMP’s Parashoot tool as well as winning a CPD contract with Pearson Education Ltd. Congratulations are also due to Steve Calver (and the MRG team, ST) for a contract with Bath Preservation Trust, Clive Andrewes (HSC) for winning a CPD contract with Care UK and also for running a dementia short course in September, and to Les Todres (HSC) who will be running a masterclass on interpretive phenomenological analysis in November. Well done to everyone involved in these projects!
