David Graham, Steve Rice and Ian Reid have been highly commended in the ‘Consultancy’ category of the Loughborough University Enterprise Awards. They were nominated for the development of software that helps engineers, ecologists and geomorphologists better understand and manage the river environment by providing information about river-bed sediments in a cost-effective way. The software – marketed under the brand name ‘Sedimetrics®’ – was developed in the Department of Geography at Loughborough University
The Enterprise Awards are a celebration of the enterprising culture that is such an integral part of the University. Sir Nigel Rudd, Chancellor of the University and BAA Chairman, presented the awards on 6 October 2010.
