The RoundView won two prizes in the first Low Carbon and Environment Competition held at the University of Manchester. These prizes will enable Joanne to work with both University of Manchester Intellectual Property (UMIP) and University of Manchester Incubator Company (UMIC) to develop the RoundView and enable it to be spread further.
Tony Walker of UMIC said:
“RoundView has a significant potential to become a framework for influence in a move toward a sustainable future. Again it could be a Manchester ‘first’ in its contribution to global economic and social well being, it was great to be able to support the further development of Dr Tippett and her work in what I hope will be a globally recognised philosophy for positive change.“
Professor Alistair Ulph, Director of the Sustainable Consumption Institute said:
“It is gratifying to see Dr Tippett’s research recognised by these two significant prizes. As lead investigator on two SCI research projects, her team identified the skills necessary to embed sustainability in the workplace. Their research has been presented widely, at prestigious events and organisations such as the World Economic Forum and UNESCO, and as importantly, has created a programme of accessible training on sustainability which is set to be rolled out further afield.”
