Congratulations to Professor Kirsten Shepherd-Barr who has been Highly Commended in the Inspiring Leadership category of the Vice-Chancellor Innovation Awards 2020 for her work on LitHits.

LitHits is an app (for mobile devices and the web) that breaks down barriers to reading by providing short, unabridged excerpts of literature to the user based on how much time they have to read. Find out more about the project here.

The Vice-Chancellor Innovation Awards celebrate research-led innovation that is having societal or economic impact. Building on the awards two years ago a new category of Policy Engagement has been added to those for Teamwork, Building Capacity, Inspiring Leadership, and Early Career Innovator.

Winners and Highly Commended entries were selected by the Vice-Chancellor’s Innovation Awards panel chaired by Professor Chas Bountra, Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Innovation, and comprising academics from each of the four Divisions and Professional Services staff who support impact and innovation across the collegiate University
