On Friday 5th February, Damien Anderson, PhD candidate in Computer and Information Sciences at the University of Strathclyde received the Robertson Medal for academic year 2015-16.

The silver medal is awarded each year to the Scholarship candidate judged to be the most outstanding of that year’s competition. The medal was introduced in 2003 to mark the contribution of the retiring Chairman of the Trust, Sir Lewis Robertson, who served the Trust for over 40 years.

The Carnegie Centenary Professorships aim to attract nominees of the highest academic standing, who will contribute to academic/scientific developments in the Scottish universities in their particular fields, whether in teaching or research or in both, in emerging as well as established disciplines or in interdisciplinary fields.

The Carnegie Trust is seeking to recruit a number of Trustees with the right experience and skills to ensure our organisation continues to develop and provide relevant and sustainable funding opportunities for the students and academic members of staff of the Scottish universities.
