The Times Higher Education Awards 2013 took place in London on Thursday 28 November, attended by more than 1,000 staff from universities across the UK. The awards dinner was set against the magnificent backdrop of the Grosvenor House Hotel in Park Lane, London, and recognised excellence throughout UK universities. The University of Sheffield was nominated for awards in two categories, Entrepreneurial University of the Year and Outstanding Contribution to Leadership Development.
The shortlisting for these prestigious awards reflected the University’s level of success in developing the skills and talents of staff and students who use their knowledge creatively and innovatively, and in supporting staff and students to develop enterprising solutions to various problems.
The glittering ceremony was conducted by comedian and presenter Sandi Toksvig, who last year succeeded Sheila Hancock as Chancellor of the University of Porstmouth.
Whilst we were disappointed to miss out on the awards, we are very pleased for the overall winners, the University of Strathclyde for Entrepreneurial University of the Year and to Welsh Crucible for Outstanding Contribution to Leadership Development.
The University of Sheffield has been shortlisted to receive two Times Higher Education awards this year; Entrepreneurial University of the Year and Outstanding Contribution to Leadership Development. The university has been shortlisted on the basis of its success in developing the skills and talents of staff and students, to enable them to use their talents innovatively and creatively.
There are various initiatives within the university to support entrepreneurship, innovation and enterprise, all of which have contributed to the university being shortlisted for these awards.
Edward Mitchell, who is currently studying for a PhD in the Law School, is also a postgraduate intern at the USE (University of Sheffield Enterprise) and will be attending the awards dinner in that capacity. In addition to this, our very own Professor Claire McGourlay will be attending the dinner, after being recognised as an enterprising and creative academic within the university.
