Ben Dymock attended the London South Bank University Scholarship Award ceremony. Ben was the 2008/9 Telent scholar in acoustics. He undertook leading research with Telent over the summer which led to a most successful Masters dissertation. Both parties are hoping that the research can be taken further!
On 22nd January 2010 Telent attended the 1st London South Bank University Scholarship Award event. Sal Murano and Steve Dance setup the scheme as part of an on-going partnership between the organisations to support further research activities. The Scholarship will again run in 2010/11 for acoustics, radio communications or CCTV systems.
The 3 year Knowledge Transfer Partnership between the Acoustics Group and Telent Technical Services has been completed. The joint research involved improving the Public Address System of London Underground. The associate was Louis Gomez, who is now a PhD student suffering from writing his research up! The project was a great success. Thanks to all the partners support.
The Noise Team at the Royal Academy of Music meet on the 20th January 2010. They have been tasked to produce a report to implement the solutions studied. The team includes the Registrar, the Concert Organizers, the Student President and LSBU Acoustics Group. We hope the senior management team like what they read!
