CASA Director, Dr Andrew Hudson-Smith, was last night honoured at the UCL Enterprise Awards 2014 with the last award of the evening, the UCL Provost's Spirit of Enterprise Award.

Nominated by Dr Andrew Edkins (The Bartlett's Vice Dean of Enterprise), the UCL Provost’s Spirit of Enterprise Award recognises the achievements and attitude of an academic at UCL that has demonstrated a willingness to engage with business in multiple ways that have enhanced their core research and teaching activities.

Mystery video clips of the nominees were shown throughout the ceremony at the Bloomsbury Theatre and the winner revealed by Professor Stephen Caddick at the end of the evening.  Andy was surprised and delighted to have won this prestigious award in recognition of his outstanding achievements.

He said "The night highlighted the amazing amount of enterprise work UCL undertakes, it was a night to be proud of UCL. All the thanks go to the full team at CASA with a special note of thanks also to Andrew Edkins (pictured above, right) for the nomination and the kind words in the movie clip about our work".
