Swansea Celebrates Innovation and Collaboration

Feb 18 2020

Under the spotlight at the Research and Innovation Awards 2020 a range of investigations and initiatives showcased by Swansea University stretched from the screening of infectious diseases, to early diagnosis of bowel cancer; understanding the environmental impact of wildfires; responding to online terrorist propaganda; developing safety equipment for professional athletes and showcasing Science in the community. Researchers from across the University’s seven Colleges were invited to submit entries with over 112 received, spread over the ten award categories.

Swansea University Vice Chancellor Professor Paul Boyle said: “Swansea University has come an incredibly long way since King George V laid our foundation stone and the doors were opened to our first intake of students a century ago this year.

“Founded by industry for industry, Swansea University’s success in making a difference over the last 100 years has been as a result of collaboration. Our continued success over the next 100 years, and our ability to tackle rapidly emerging global challenges, and capitalise on exciting new opportunities will be as a result of collaboration.

"As an Institution we have engaged with over 4,000 organisations across 53 countries in our recent past. These awards showcase what can be achieved when we work together. The Impact we are having together. The difference we are making together."

The winners were announced at a ceremony at Swansea University’s Great Hall, where David TC Davies, UK Government Minister for Wales said: "Swansea University has for so many years played a central role in enhancing the economic prospects of the region and the whole of Wales, as well as contributing research of global significance.

"The ground-breaking research and innovation projects currently taking place on campus are vitally important in educating the next generation, facilitating the creation of new companies and skilled jobs and continuing to attract the brightest talent to Wales and the UK."
