The school is part of the IoP project JUNO. The aim of Juno is to recognise and reward departments that can demonstrate they have taken action to address the under-representation of women in university physics and to encourage better practice for both women and men. We currently hold JUNO supporter status and are working towards the JUNO Practitioner award.
