Amy and the Equine Technical Team were nominated for the award online by their Nottingham Trent University colleagues, and were then shortlisted as finalists.

A prestigious award sharing best practice

The Papin Prizes recognise the skills, talent and experience of technicians in higher education and research across the UK and Ireland. They are open to technicians from all disciplines with awards across a variety of categories. The aim is to share best practice among higher education technical staff.

“The roles that technicians do, usually behind the scenes, is vital in ensuring the success of our universities and research institutes, providing academic, research and student colleagues with the essential technical expertise that they need to enable their research and teaching," says Dr. Helen Turner, Director of Midlands Innovation.

“It is essential that we highlight and recognise their contributions and the Papin Prize offers a prestigious opportunity to do that.”

"Thank you to everyone who nominated technical colleagues for the Midlands Innovation Papin Prizes. We are proud that both Amy Horne and the Equine Technical Team have been shortlisted as finalists for these awards," adds Cat Sanderson, School Technical Manager.
