Congratulations to Prof Ed Galea, Dr Hui Xie, Dr Steve Deere, Dr Lynn Hulse and Mr David Cooney of the Fire Safety Engineering Group, University of Greenwich for the achievement of the prestigious award from the Society of Fire Protection Engineers (UK Chapter).
The winning project, on Construction site evacuation safety: Evacuation strategies for tall construction sites, was a result of team effort and ‘it was also a great example of what can be achieved when academics partner with industry’, according to Professor Ed Galea.
“Outstanding, unique and informative research in an area seldom explored. There is great potential to make the construction environment and all those who work in it safer from fire and this research provides data and tools to achieve this objective.” SFPE
A group of 5 University of Greenwich students participated in a Hackathon by Disrupt Normandy, 21 -22 October, in Caen, Normandy, France. Students from the University of Portsmouth also took part.
The five participating from University of Greenwich, School of Computing and Mathematical Sciences were Claire Stretch, Daniel Gillette, Danny Roberts, Temor Al-Kaisi and Trevor Evans, had previously been involved in similar events.

All participants are deserving of recognition in participating in such a competitive hackathon.
This month, Ghislaine Boddington, a Reader in Digital Immersion at the University of Greenwich School of Design is helping promote a number of events that explore the convergence of body, data , digital culture and space empower women in technology.
At the recently held 22nd EMPC – the European Microelectronics and Packaging Conference – the Computational Mechanics and Reliability Group (CMRG) at the School of Computing and Mathematical Sciences has received the prestigious Best Paper Award for their work entitled “Packaging Challenges and Reliability Performance of Compound Semiconductor Focal Plane Arrays”.
The diversity + inclusivity by Design: Empowering individuals: international exhibition was featured as part of the London Design Festival and in particular highlighted as part of the SE London design district. This research exhibition reviews the shifting correlation between the designer and the “other”. Our society is changing and as a result of various factors – political, economic and cultural disputes, -we change the way we co-exist; co-participate; co-feeling; co-design. LDN celebrating and promoting London as the design capital of the world. The school of Design participation to LDN 2019 is one among a number of research centres, HEIs, Museums and organisations, placing University of Greenwich among the best in the world. LDN 2019 attracting more than 500,000 visitors over one week, every year.
