The school at the University of East Anglia (UEA) was presented the Queen’s Anniversary Prize at Buckingham Palace earlier this month by Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall.

The awards recognise outstanding excellence, innovation and beneficial impact.

Professor Kevin Hiscock collected the award, and was accompanied by vice chancellor professor David Richardson, chancellor Karen Jones, director of the Tyndall Centre Corrinne Le Quere, chair of council Joe Greenwell and five students.

The postgraduate students were able to speak to Prince Charles about their research.

Prof Hiscock, the head of the school, said: “It was a very memorable occasion for us all and a fitting tribute to the achievements of the school in the 50 years of its teaching and research in environmental sciences.”
