STRI scoops accolade from Bradford University

Features, News, Research / 27th September 2018

STRI has scooped two gongs at the University of Bradford’s Summer Experience Awards last night.

 

We are thrilled to have won the Outstanding Placement Provider (SME) for our work experience internships, and helping intern, Samuel Birch, claim the Outstanding Placement Student award.

Samuel (Chemical Engineering), Malika Zahedi (Biomedical Sciences), and Steven Hopkinson (Chemistry), joined STRI as part of the Summer Experience Placement programme for six-weeks where they provided invaluable support within our research team at its world class facilities in West Yorkshire.

 

Over the course of the summer internship, the students gained knowledge on conducting scientific trials, project management and data analysis.

 

We have been running Summer Experience placements for a number of years. Former intern Sam Swires, who graduated this year, has now joined us in a full-time position as Trials Officer.

 

STRI Research operations manager, Dr Christian Spring, said: “It was a very successful night for STRI at Bradford University. It has been a great opportunity for STRI to mentor and support the next generation of turf scientists.

 

“I am delighted that our intern students fitted seamlessly into the research team, and that they gained such a large amount from their research experience, and that both STRI and the students have been recognised in the Summer Experience Awards. We would encourage all businesses to engage with work experience students, as we have benefited enormously from our involvement over the last few years.”
