GAMIFICATION+ 2018 Entrepreneurship Prize Awarded

On Friday 3rd August we returned to the Sallis Benny Theater to recognise and celebrate the academic ability of graduates of the University of Brighton. 

The GAMIFICATION+ prize is awarded for the best entrepreneurship research paper. This year the prize was given to Thomas Harvey who can be seen in the picture receiving his award from Lucy Jones, Deputy Head of School. 

Pete said: "I am consistently impressed by the quality of the papers that I see among the student body. We have given this award for the past seven years and embrace the opportunity to acknowledge and reward the hard working students for their fantastic work throughout the year. Congratulations to Thomas."
