Congratulations to our Research Engineer John Tredinnick (working with the National Trust) who has been awarded £2000 by the University of Bath’s Public Engagement Unit.

John will be using the money to trial an immersive exploration exhibit depicting the 1864 Victorian archaeological discovery of The National Trust’s Chedworth Roman Villa.

If any other Research Engineers are interested in applying, the Unit will be holding a further two funding calls before the end of the 2013/2014 academic year – a sandpit in Spring 2014 aimed at developing collaborations and creative ideas for a new engagement platform in the University, and a final seed funding call for ‘public engagement with research’ projects in May 2014.

Well done, John!
