Meet the winners of the CALIBRE Awards

More than 3,100 votes were cast to decide the winner of the inaugural CALIBRE Awards.

The Awards provide an opportunity to recognise and celebrate the sheer breadth of excellent research undertaken across campus.

The work of the 12 shortlisted finalists reflects this diversity – spanning cutting-edge engineering, manufacturing and technology; political and literary analysis; smart business solutions; health and wellbeing; and infrastructure resilience.

Despite the diversity of the work, it has plenty in common. Much is conducted in collaboration with external partners across the public, private and voluntary sectors. Most, if not all, of the projects have attracted external funding. Crucially, they all have the potential to deliver real-world impacts.

From among this strong field of contenders, the winner is Dr Alok Choudhary and his team from the School of Business and Economics who have developed a set of innovative analytical tools for sustainability assessment, improvement and risk mitigation within supply chains.

Professor Steve Rothberg, Pro Vice-Chancellor (Research), says: “Very many congratulations to all of our finalists and to our winner, Dr Alok Choudhary and his team.

“The Awards have shone a spotlight on the quality and diversity of our research across campus and, as PVC (Research), it’s such a privilege to be working alongside such innovative and talented colleagues.

“Our intention is to repeat the Awards up to three times a year as a celebration of the new methods, theories, frameworks, data and discoveries at the heart of our research across all disciplines. I’m already excited to hear about our next round of finalists.”
