Solent roadshow research

Last week, Southampton Solent University was awarded the Best Collaboration & External Partner award at the University of Southampton’s Roadshow Awards 2016.

The Roadshow Awards take place each year to celebrate ‘Bringing Research to Life’ and sharing it with the public.

Dr Ali Hill, Course Leader of BSc (Hons) Sport Coaching, School of Sport, Health and Social Sciences at Solent University attended and collected the award.

She says, “It’s a huge honour to receive this award. It highlights what Solent is doing to engage with the public and share our research with the wider community.”

“We work closely with the University of Southampton Roadshow at festivals and other events. Earlier this year, we linked up at Glastonbury festival in the science tent,” she continues.
