In the highly competitive bid, Professor Di Silivio's programme was rated as one of the top. Presentation of the award in person will take place in China, but due to the current Coronavirus pandemic, this has had to be delayed.

“This is a most prestigious award for Professor Lucy Di Silvio and follows strong personal collaboration with colleagues at Zhejiang who nominated her for the award. It is an honour for the College and Faculty as well as Professor Di Silvio personally and provides further exciting collaborative research opportunities. We look forward to celebrating her receiving this award in person.”
