The University made a strong showing in The Engineer Technology and Innovation Awards, with teams from Bristol involved in two of the eight award-winning projects.
The Engineer Technology and Innovation Awards 2009 recognise and reward outstanding examples of technology, innovation and collaboration between companies and universities. The winning projects with University of Bristol involvement are:
Aerospace and Defence category
The ALADDIN project (Autonomous Learning Agents for Decentralised Data and Information Networks), whose team includes Dr David Leslie and PhD students Michalis Smyrnakis and Ben May from the Department of Mathematics, along with researchers from the universities of Southampton and Oxford, Imperial College London and BAE Systems.
Process and Production category
‘Ice Pigging in the Water Supply Industry’, a project led by Professor Joe Quarini in the Department of Mechanical Engineering in collaboration with Bristol Water that uses ice instead of chemicals to clean drinking water pipes (You can read more about the highly successful ice pigging project in a previous news item and in an article in The Engineer's Technology and Innovation Awards 2009 Supplement).
