Lihong Zhou (Nick) former MSc and PhD student in the our School and now Prof. in the Information School of Wuhan University, was awarded, in collaboration with Miguel Nunes, a National Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC) Project entitled "Inter-organisational tacit knowledge sharing in hospitals through the processes of patient transfer and referral", with the project permission no. 71203165 and in a total of 210,000 RMB (approximately £21,000). This is a significant grant in China both in terms of funding total and prestige.

Congratulations to Nick who is much missed in the IS Research Group.
