SINDRI at The Engineer’s Collaborate to Innovate Awards

Published on: Author: Meg Hicks

Last week, representatives from the SINDRI project were thrilled to attend The Engineer’s Collaborate to Innovate Awards in London. SINDRI was shortlisted for the category of Information, Data & Connectivity, alongside five other incredible projects. The event was dedicated to celebrating the ways in which collaboration drives innovation in all areas of Engineering.

Winners were announced across nine categories, including healthcare, energy & environment and young innovators. By bringing together teams from such a wide range of engineering themes, the evening was filled with opportunity for discussion and learning about the breadth of work taking place across the UK.


Meg Hicks and Hadiza Mohammed were happy to represent SINDRI at the awards!

Hadiza Mohammed, Programme Manager for the SINDRI Project, was delighted to see SINDRI shortlisted:


“It was fantastic to see SINDRI represented alongside so many talented groups of engineers. For our researchers and collaborators to receive recognition of the quality of their work and dedication to innovation in the nuclear sector was a real honour.”


Not only were multi-collaborator large-scale projects represented, but the evening also celebrated young engineers who proved to be very talented individuals.


“The projects developed by young engineers were really inspiring; it was great to chat with members of the next generation of engineers who already had their sights set on careers in engineering and working to solve problems facing society.”


The SINDRI project is a collaboration between The University of Bristol, EDF, Imperial College London, The University of Manchester, and The Henry Royce Institute. We are working to develop and introduce data-centric engineering practices to streamline the development, manufacture and maintenance of nuclear power plants.
