The Blog would like to congratulate all the winners at yesterday’s MMU staff awards. Well done also to all who were short-listed and nominated – it was great to hear the fantastic work that colleagues are doing and there were some really inspirational quotes from the nominators.
However, we couldn’t let the moment pass without saying a very special well done to our very own Germaine Loader and Berthold Schoene who won the awards for Service Excellence and Outstanding Innovation in Research/Knowledge Exchange respectively.
Speaking with the Blog, Dave Raper (Director of Research and Knowledge Exchange) commented:
‘It’s great to see Germaine and Berthold receiving recognition for their contributions with their well-deserved awards. The Research and Knowledge Exchange team has made a major difference to MMU over the past two years. The level of support and expertise the team provide to academic staff in bidding for research grants, engaging with business and in managing our institutional submissions to HEFCE is sector leading. The whole team have contributed to this success and should be proud of their achievements.’
Congratulations once again Germaine and Berthold, and we promise we’ll stop embarrassing you now!
