Made in Middlesex - Our amazing staff

Our staff are amazing.

They are passionate and committed and bring their talent, industry and professional expertise, their networks and connections to life through their teaching and practice and through the support and care we provide for our students.

Our annual One Middlesex Staff Awards are an opportunity to showcase and celebrate some of the ways our incredible staff are shaping, developing and growing success at MDX.

Contribution to the Wider Community

The team who conceptualised, developed, launched and continue to manage this highly successful in-demand project are celebrated for their ingenuity, creativity and dedication to continuously developing our student’s skills and experience.

Project of the Year

Visual Analytics for Sense-making in Criminal Intelligence Analysis (VALCRI ) is an EU FP7 funded project coordinated by Middlesex University and is a semi-automated analysis system that helps find connections that humans often miss. When investigating a legal case, it can be used by analysts to reconstruct situations, generate insights and discover leads. A prototype version of the system has been deployed at West Midlands Police, Belgium Federal Police and Antwerp Local Police. For more than four years, our dedicated, highly skilled and talented team at MDX have been supporting the showcase and development of VALCRI through working with over 25 law enforcement agencies in nine countries (including Europe, Australia, Hong Kong and the USA) and over 100 analysts to promote and evaluate the project.
