Monthly update: December 2014

Started the month with a ‘mini’ celebration for completing six months at BU! Been a fantastic six months.

Preparations for the second Global Buzz workshop dominated the first half of the month. What will be our vision for taking fusion global, what will it mean when we do so, how do we approach internationalisation at BU so our academic footprint has a global reach and delivers impact were some of the questions raised and discussed at the workshop itself. More updates on it can be found on (#GlobalBUzz and @globalbu). Spent all of last week translating and capturing all we discussed into a framework for Global Engagement. It will continue to be worked on over the next month, a cascade to the wider University will follow in January-super excited!

And oh REF results out-lots of excitement both at BU and across the sector.

Excellent end to the year-a very merry Xmas to all. See you in the New Year!
