Vice-Chancellor’s Staff Award Winners – Faculty of Science & Technology

Durotrigues-375x250Congratulations to The Durotriges Project Team being Collaborative Team Award Winners 2014 at the Vice-Chancellor Staff Awards 2014.

The Durotriges Project Team were identified as a ‘beacon of Fusion’ to win a VC Staff Award 2014.

The Durotriges Project Team were nominated for the innovative way in which they have blended research, education and professional practice over a sustained period of time in order to enhance the student learning experience, but also to engage the wider community.

The Durotriges Project Team combine, in a wonderful way, research, education and professional practice.  Research because through excavation, they are attempting to unravel the history of the late Iron Age/Early Roman Period in South West England; education because they train generations of students from BU and further afield in the skills of the trade, and professional practice because they engage the wider public and volunteers and help people take the skills they’ve learnt into real life experience”.

This project is a beacon of Fusion that does BU proud.
