The AHRC funded, Ordered Universe Research Project, led by Dr Giles Gasper, Durham University has been shortlisted for the THE Annual Awards, for the category Research Project of the Year.

The Ordered Universe focuses on the scientific writings of Robert Grosseteste (c.1170-1253), and is an interdisciplinary fusion of medieval specialists with modern scientists. Co-directed by Dr Hannah Smithson (Oxford) and Professor Tom McLeish (Durham), the project involves an international research team, and has resulted in a wide series of publications (including Nature, Nature Physics, Proceedings of the Royal Society, articles in the Economist, the New Statesman and New Scientist,) editions and translations of Grosseteste’s works, for example On Colourand engagement activities.
