NTU to receive Queen's Anniversary prize

His Royal Highness, The Prince of Wales, with The Duchess of Cornwall, will present Nottingham Trent University with its prestigious Queen’s Anniversary Prize for Higher and Further Education on Thursday February 25, on behalf of Her Majesty The Queen.

Representatives from the university will receive the award – in recognition of the institution’s world-class research – during a formal honours ceremony at Buckingham Palace.

Pioneering projects to improve weapons and explosives detection in luggage, enable safer production of powdered infant formula, and combat food fraud, have led to the award.

Queen’s Anniversary Prize winners were announced in November by the Royal Anniversary Trust.

Nottingham Trent University Chancellor Kevin Cahill and Vice-Chancellor Professor Edward Peck will receive the award on behalf of the institution. They will be joined at the ceremony by a delegation from the university, including Pro Vice-Chancellor for Research, Professor Yvonne Barnett, the Dean of the School of Science and Technology, Professor Martin McGinnity and researchers who have been involved in the pioneering work.

Professor Peck, said: “We are very proud to be receiving this award which recognises that there is world-leading research being  undertaken at NTU that delivers major tangible benefits to society.”
