Times Higher Education Awards 2011 winners

Times Higher Education Awards 2011

This year’s Times Higher Education Awards see the university’s three core missions of research, teaching and engagement represented in an array of innovation and inspiration.

Among the research achievements that captured the imagination of our judges are a wristwatch blood-pressure monitor, a light-based decontaminant that destroys hospital superbugs, and software that is able to help traffic flow more smoothly and increase the safety of jet engines.

Teaching impact reaches across borders with a training scheme for China’s breast cancer specialists of the future and an “enterprise for life” programme that has been delivered to over 30,000 students in 200 universities worldwide by one enterprising and innovative teacher in Belfast.

In the community, lives are being changed by projects that help to ease isolation among Congolese migrant women and children, and increase recruitment of bright pupils from socially disadvantaged backgrounds

This year the coveted accolade of University of the Year goes to a university that had the courage in a climate of financial uncertainty to go back to its roots and focus on the values of a civic institution: serving the people and the economy of the city.

Congratulations to them and to all of our winners.
