This month saw the annual Open University Research Excellence Awards take place, held at the MK DoubleTree Hilton Hotel at the MKDons Stadium in Milton Keynes. Dame Jocelyn Bell Burnell was the guest speaker; the astrophysicist who co-discovered the first radio pulsars in 1967.
It was a delight to have so many SPS staff nominated and shortlisted:
- Ian Wright was awarded the 50th Anniversary Prize
- Taff Morgan was awarded the prize for Outstanding Impact of Research on Society and Prosperity
