    Stirling University to receive top academic honour

    Written by on November 22, 2019

    The University of Stirling’s Institute of Aquaculture is to receive a top academic honour.

    It’ll be given the Queen’s Anniversary Prize – which will be presented at Buckingham Palace in February.

    A major redevelopment of the Institute’s facilities is expected next year, as part of the Stirling & Clacks City Deal.

    It caps a successful period for the University, after being named UK Sports University of the Year.


    Principal of the University, Professor Gerry McCormac said, “Everyone here at the University is thrilled to have won this highly prestigious honour in recognition of the internationally-renowned research and teaching led by the Institute of Aquaculture.

    “Our experts are working to tackle global problems of food security, hunger and sustainability through aquaculture – and have a global reputation for teaching, world-class research, technological innovation and consultancy within the sector.

    “This award is testament to the hard work and dedication of our team in the Institute, as well as within the wider University.

    “The honour also reflects the University’s vision to be recognised across the world as a leader that addresses the needs of society through innovative interdisciplinary research, learning and teaching of the highest quality.”

    Sir Damon Buffini, Chairman of The Royal Anniversary Trust, added, “The Prizes are granted every two years by The Queen and are the most prestigious national honour awarded to UK universities and colleges for their work.

    “Entries in the scheme are invited in any subject area and are subjected to rigorous independent assessment in a process managed by the Royal Anniversary Trust.

    “Recommendations for the Queen’s approval are made on the Prime Minister’s advice.

    “The criteria are demanding and look for outstanding excellence in the chosen field, for innovation and for evidence of real public benefit.

    “Competition is strong and the award is a mark of high quality in education and training which is widely recognised internationally as well as in the UK.”
