I visited Sheffield Hallam University yesterday with Head of Department Prof Jill Stewart. Jill and I were discussing collaboration with @DerbyUniIISE on upcoming EU #Horizon2020 calls. It was also an opportunity to take an overview of the changes which will take place in the Department.
Jill has been successful in securing £5 M from the HEFCE HE STEM Teaching Capital initiative to develop Engineering and Chemistry facilities to support increasing numbers of students studying STEM subjects. This project, a collaboration with the Department of Engineering and Mathematics and Bioscience and Chemistry led by Jill Stewart, will be match-funded by the University and will involve the creation of new engineering laboratories, a chemistry laboratory in the Sheaf Building and the development of an atrium between Sheaf and EMB.
