Glastonbury and UWE Bristol announce partnership
The University of the West of England (UWE Bristol) is delighted to announce a five-year official partnership with Glastonbury Festival, after researchers developed the Pee Power urinal.
The Pee Power urinal that turns urine into electricity, designed by researchers in Bristol BioEnergy Centre (BBiC) based at the Bristol Robotics Laboratory (BRL) at UWE Bristol, has been in operation at the festival since 2015.
UWE students will also research energy efficiency measures in collaboration with the festival power providers, stage production teams and mobile traders.
The agreement will last for five years and formalises the ongoing work between the two organisations.
Professor West said: “This partnership cements a relationship with the festival that has been working for a number of years.
“We are focusing on sustainability projects that matter deeply to the University and resonate with the ethos of Glastonbury Festival.
“The partnership means we can contribute to helping Glastonbury Festival with waste reduction and energy efficiency and also demonstrate Pee Power, a flagship research project for UWE Bristol.”
The agreement between the university and the festival states: “The parties commit themselves to exploring mutually beneficial collaborative projects promoting sustainable development and providing valuable opportunities for students to gain experience of working in this unique environment.”

Gdpr (general Data Protection Regulations)
Members will have read lots about GDPR over the last few months. It is shortly to become law and you need to make sure you are up to speed. By far the best advice we can offer you is to look at the website www.ico.org.uk look at their section on GDPR 'Twelve Steps to Take Now'. This is taking the words straight from the horse's mouth and there is also a questions and answers section if you get into difficulties. It is not an onerous task, for most of our members it will hardly affect us, but there are some points there that need to be noted.

Everyone and their dog is talking about the new GDPR regulations coming in May this year. But very few people are offering you a concrete solution.
