Vote now for the winners of the CALIBRE Awards

Staff from the Mathematics Education Centre have been selected as finalists in Loughborough University's Winter 2019 CALIBRE Awards.

Voting is now open to help choose the winners of the Winter 2019 CALIBRE Awards and staff from the Mathematics Education Centre are among the finalists.

The theme of this round of the Awards – which recognise the excellent work undertaken across both the Loughborough and London campuses – is Open Research.

All of the finalists are undertaking first-class research, but have also chosen Open Research methods – stimulating wider dialogue and collaboration, and enhancing impact – by either freely sharing their methodology, resources, data or software.

The standard of entrants was exceptional, making it difficult to whittle down an impressive longlist of nominees to a shortlist of just five.

You are now invited to review the excellent shortlisted projects and vote for your favourite.

Professor Steve Rothberg, Pro Vice-Chancellor (Research), says: “All of the shortlisted projects are worthy winners, and I hope the public vote will get people talking about Open Research.

“I really believe that the Open Research agenda will transform the way we conduct and share our research over the coming decade. So, it’s good to see so many of the University’s researchers already engaged in its many aspects.”

Voting closes at midnight on 1 December, and the winners will be announced on Friday 6 December at the Research Repository launch event where we will also introduce the University’s landmark Position Statement on Open Research.
