Innovation and Impact Awards 2015: Maths Saves Lives
3 June 2015
Professor Tim Phillips congratulates the School of Mathematics on being recognised in Cardiff University's Innovation and Impact Awards.
I am pleased to announce the School has won one of the University’s Innovation and Impact Awards for 2015. Five pioneering research projects which have transformed policy and practice in business, healthcare and society have been recognised by Cardiff University. The prize-winning projects have been chosen ahead of the University’s annual Innovation and Impact Awards Ceremony in June.
The ‘Innovation in Healthcare’ Award, sponsored by leading law firm Geldards and IP Group, has been awarded to the School’s healthcare modellers led by Paul Harper. The award recognises the team’s innovative work to help NHS Wales design and deliver prudent healthcare services to ensure resources are used to maximum effect. This work has provided a greater understanding of the complexity of healthcare processes, leading to optimal service design, reduced waiting times, improved access to care, and ultimately saving lives.
Congratulations to all involved in this high impact project!
