Bishop Burton College student Martina Robinson has spoken of her joy and disbelief at being named ‘Student of the Year’ at a highly prestigious awards ceremony.
Rural and allied businesses in the Yorkshire region and beyond benefit from cutting-edge research and a pool of industry expertise which prepares them for the issues posed by climate change, population growth and increasing government legislation thanks to the Bishop Burton Centre for Agricultural Innovation.
The centre has been established to draw together all strands of land-based research currently carried out by staff and students at the College.
By establishing a centre such as this, the results of valuable applied research can be used, built upon and promoted effectively to the betterment of agricultural and allied industries.
This, in turn, creates knowledge transfer between the College, other academic organisations and industry partners, which is then be shared with food producers and other areas of industry.
