Dr Stefanos Papanicolopulos and Dr Mathieu Lucquiaud from our School have each been awarded a Royal Academy of Engineering (RAEng) Industrial Fellowship. They are among 19 mid-career researchers around the country whose research has been recognised in this way. The RAEng’s Industrial Fellowship programme is designed to strengthen links between universities and industry through the development of new collaborative partnerships with strong industrial relevance.
REF eligible staff are invited to declare any circumstances that have impacted on their ability to research productively (e.g. extended periods of family-related leave, secondments or career breaks) during the REF 2021 assessment period.
Madagascar is one of the most vulnerable countries in the world to cyclones; for example, cyclone Enawo (2017) caused 81 deaths and destroyed over 300,000 buildings, including 38,000 homes. Non-engineered traditional structures make up 86.5% of houses, and Non-Government Organisations (NGOs) are working to train local people to improve the wind resistance of their homes.
