University’s impact on the world celebrated at Enterprise Awards
Pioneering noise reduction technology, an app to encourage healthy eating and a celebration of the UK’s thriving animation industry were amongst last night’s winners at Loughborough University’s Enterprise Awards.
Now in their fifth year, and hosted on the University’s Science and Enterprise Parks, the Enterprise Awards recognise the impact of the University’s research partnerships and its game-changing graduates. Enterprise Pro Vice Chancellor, Professor Steve Rothberg, revealed the winners which were decided by 12,500 public votes.
Loughborough graduate Laurence Kemball-Cook was awarded the title of Innovation and Enterprise Fellow, in recognition of his company Pavegen. Dr Paul Adcock, Philip Mitchell, Jon Moore and Tony Newbold, the founding academics behind the fuel cell breakthrough which gave rise to a new generation of clean power systems championed by Intelligent Energy, received the Outstanding Contribution to Enterprise Award.
