last modified Jul 15, 2019 11:08 AM

Plant Sciences' project 'LEDing the way to greener plant growth' was honoured at the national Green Gown Awards in Bristol last Thursday. We were Highly Commended in the Research & Development category; effectively placing us second in a highly competitive group.

The department's Energy Co-ordinator Martin Howes was on hand to receive the commendation. It is a deserved recognition of the effort being put into the project by so many and a nice reminder of the importance and impact of what we are working towards.

The Department has carried out a comprehensive COVID-19 risk assessment process and has opened to allow research work to take place. To ensure the safety of our staff, a range of measures to reduce building occupancy and allow strict social distancing have been introduced, including increased cleaning and hygiene regimes.
