Following on from the success of the STARS innovation policy placement interviews, three STARS students Emily Dowdeswell (Cranfield) Jasmine Burr-Hersey (Nottingham) and Hannah Cooper (Nottingham) have secured positions within Government. These placements will each last a duration of three months, during which time the students will be positioned at the heart of policy, applying knowledge gained from their studentships to wider governmental issues. Currently two placements are underway within Defra, whilst a third is scheduled to begin with the House of Lords Library next month. The STARS team wish Emily, Jasmine and Hannah an enjoyable and successful time.
