Each fortnight bulletin highlights and celebrates the latest prizes awarded to our fellow staff members.

Huge congratulations to the Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies who have won the first ever Veterinary School of the year award. The prize recognises the School’s investment in teaching and training activities in animal welfare through its many projects.

The award is a new category within the 2020 Global Animal Welfare Awards, which runs in conjunction with the World Veterinary Association and Ceva Animal Health.

The Library’s uCreate Makerspace has won Outstanding Library Team in the Times Higher Education (THE) Awards. The prize recognises the innovation of the studio as it offers the use of new and emerging technologies to aid both staff and students in their research, teaching and learning. The team has also been able to use the uCreate Makerspace to support the shift to hybrid teaching this year. Find out more about the services the studio offer on the uCreate website.
