I’m delighted to announce that the HaMpton app was a finalist in the University of East Anglia Innovation and Impact Awards 2018.
Winners of the inaugural Innovation and Impact Awards were announced on 1 February at the Sainsbury Centre. The awards celebrated staff and students who have shown a strong commitment to innovation and impact, and recognised collaborations between UEA and organisations outside higher education.
Finalists, UEA staff, guests, and external organisations, including Adnams, Anglian Water, Barclays, EDP, IBM, Innovate UK, Marsh, New Anglia LEP, and Norwich City Council, attended for networking drinks, a three-course meal, and presentation of the awards.
The awards ceremony was hosted by Chancellor Karen Jones CBE, who spoke passionately about the importance of innovation and enterprise at UEA and fostering relationships with external collaborators to further ensure impact beyond academia.
