The Greenwich Forum would like to offer their congratulations to University of Cardiff student Lucy Taylor, the winner of the Undergraduate Prize 2014.

This prize was set up by The Greenwich Forum to encourage students to pursue current maritime/marine questions in their degree work, in whatever discipline, and to reward the best of that work, the Forum has established an annual prize of £500 for the best undergraduate final year project/dissertation.

The panel of judges had the hard job of selecting the best undergraduate dissertation which has been awarded a First Class mark.

There were 8 excellent nominations for students at Cardiff, Greenwich, Hull, King’s College London, Newcastle and Southampton.

The prize was awarded to Lucy for the outstanding undergraduate dissertation entitled ‘An assessment of the relationship between Posidonia oceanica morphology and the invasive Caulerpa racemosa in the eastern Aegean’.

The deadline for applicant submission for the next annual prize is 1st August 2015 and The Greenwich Forum looks forward to seeing entries from further topics.
