UNIVERSITY SCIENTISTS IN WESTMINSTER SHOWCASE

 

Three lecturers from the University of Lincolnshire & Humberside will be at Westminster next week to help showcase the best of British science.

 

Darryl Georgiou, Trudy Harris and Greg Horler will be taking part in a poster presentation at the House of Commons on Monday (15th March) which aims to highlight science, engineering and technology work being done by younger researchers.

 

The three academics were selected from over 400 applicants to make their presentations as part of SET99 - the National Week of Science, Engineering and Technology.

 

Darryl Georgiou will talk to MPs and other visitors about his research and development work in the field of new media art forms. Trudy Harris has been working with ULH and the University of Hull on diamond cutting tool materials, while Greg Horler is conducting research into fuels for automobile engines.

 

“Younger researchers are the engine room of SET research and development in the UK and are an important national asset,” said a spokesman for the event.

 

A spokesman for the University of Lincolnshire & Humberside commented: “The fact that three of our researchers have been invited to showcase their work at Westminster is an indication of the important research and development which is taking place at our university.”
