Professor John Donegan won the Inventors Award while Professors' David McCloskey and Stephen Dooley with were recognised with the ‘One to Watch’ award's.

The Inventors award is presented to those Academics whose innovative research has led to the creation of intellectual property and has subsequently licensed to Industry. Professor John Donegan was the recipient, recognising his many patents in laser systems.

Dr David McCloskey and Dr Stephen Dooley were recognised with the ‘One to Watch’ award which is presented to up and coming entrepreneurial Academics whose research is most likely to result in the next Campus Company, commercial license deal or industry engagement. Both based in the School of Physics, Dr McCloskey’s work in energy systems has included innovative work in ceramic materials and 3D printing while Dr Dooley’s work on understanding the mechanism of chemical reactions occurring on fuel conversion devices has led to new learnings on how to improve their operation from an efficiency and green energy point of view.
