the Optical Engineering and Quantum Photonics Group was recently given an opportunity to blow its own trumpet, as we won a highly commended certificate in the Research Group Award category for our public engagement projects. our representatives received the certificate at the SEPnet Public Engagement Awards on 29th November 2017.
SEPnet reported that, ” The panel was formed by Public Engagement experts from outside the SEPnet region, who weren’t Physics focused, and representatives from the IOP and RAS Outreach & Public Engagement teams. They were extremely impressed with the standard of nominations. There were many difficult decisions and it came down to splitting hairs.” http://www.sepnet.ac.uk/sepnet-celebrates-public-engagement-award-ceremony
