Fri, 2 November 12 09:00

UCD School of Medicine & Medical Science took home the prestigious 'best practice' website award at last night's Irish Web Awards. This year's competition was the biggest yet: more than 900 entrants competed for 27 awards. The winners were announced on 1st November in Dublin's Mansion House.

Professor Bill Powderly, Dean of Medicine at UCD and Head of School said:

We made a conscious decision earlier this year to produce a website that suitably reflects the scope and breadth of our research and educational mission. Our priority is delivering a truly exceptional online experience for prospective and current students, staff members, patients, researchers and members of the public. We're delighted and proud to be recognised as innovators with the best practice website award - it is a great tribute to the team who drove the project to such a fitting conclusion.

The award was presented to Mark Byrne, Communications Manager at the School and Paul Harkin, Director of Strategic Development. The School is extremely grateful to the design and development team at X Communications, all those involved with the 2012 Irish Web Awards - and to our fantastic students and staff members for their advice, feedback and enthusiasm throughout the project.
