The Better World Showcase, the Faculty of Science and Engineering’s social responsibility awards, took place on Monday 12 February. The event celebrated staff and students who are ‘making a difference’ through projects which benefit society or the environment.

The event was hosted by Professor Martin Schröder, Dean of the Faculty, who praised the number and variety of projects and the commitment of those involved in social responsibility. Many of the judges who presented the awards commented on the high quality of the 45 nominations and how difficult this made the judging. As a result a number of projects were highly commended in addition to those who won the award in each of the nine categories.

In total 20 outstanding projects were recognised, a full list of which can be found on the Faculty’s website.

At the event, posters of all of the excellent nominations were on display for guests to see. Along with the awards ceremony, guests enjoyed afternoon tea as well as performances from the School of Chemical Engineering and Analytical Science’s staff choir and Yusuf Tarajia, a chemical engineering student and award-winning spoken word poet.

Photos of the event can be seen on the Faculty’s Facebook page.

Posters of all of the projects nominated in the Better World Showcase can be viewed in the Virtual Showcase.
