Innovation at Surrey recognised

The University of Surrey and Surrey Research Park’s central role in innovation in Guildford was once again recognised at this year’s Guildford Innovation Awards.

The annual awards celebrate inspirational innovation across a broad spectrum of sectors in the local area – building upon the theme of supporting Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) subjects.

University of Surrey winners in the awards included:

Professor David Sampson, Vice-Provost, Research and Innovation at the University of Surrey, said:

“I was delighted to see Surrey successes from all points of our innovation ecosystem – undergraduates, postgraduates, academics, alumni and Surrey Research Park members. It is a testament to the richness of our ecosystem, and our appetite for making a difference and participating in the Guildford innovation economy. Congratulations to the Borough Council for a fantastic event – very Guildford!”

Chris Burchell, Local Economy Manager at Guildford Borough Council says: “The Innovation Awards celebrate the best and brightest that our borough has to offer. Congratulations to this year’s winners and all who entered. I look forward to following the inspirational future developments in all of these fields and the positive impact they’ll have in our borough and beyond.”
