Aberystwyth University's Institute of Biological, Environmental and Rural Sciences (IBERS) has won the Outstanding Contribution to Innovation and Technology category award at the Times Higher Education Awards. Aberystwyth University is also a member of Welsh Crucible which won the award for the Outstanding Contribution to Leadership Development.
A state-of-the art research and development hub moved one step closer to completion today as constituency MP, funders and contractors gathered to complete the main structure of the new Centrum building on Norwich Research Park. The new £11.5M building, funded by BBSRC and built by Morgan Sindall, is due to open in Spring 2014.
In 2014, BBSRC will mark its 20th anniversary with a series of engaging activities to highlight the impact of its research base, world-leading bioscience, and its important contribution to the UK economy. Many of the activities will build on existing BBSRC public, industry and stakeholder engagement programmes but will be brought together with a common strand for 2014: ‘20 years of pioneering Great British bioscience’.
