Young people are the life-blood of our industry, and the Award is just one of the ways that MEI is committed to encouraging and supporting outstanding young people. We are therefore pleased to announce the appointment of Prof. Dee Bradshaw, of the University of Cape Town, as our "Living Gold" Ambassador. Dee coined the phrase Living Gold when her passion for nurturing and developing graduate students at the University of Queensland was recognised with an award from the university in 2013 for excellence in post graduate supervision. Her role will be to represent and work with MEI to develop innovative ways to boost research capacity and career development and to encourage and prepare young people for participation in MEI conferences.
