The fourth award of the ‘H’ Rowbotham Memorial Prize was made to Steve Harmer at the HFI Symposium held at DE&S on 21 May 2015. The award is made each year to an individual judged to have contributed to the development or application of Human Factors Integration (HFI) in a significant way. The judging panel comprises representatives of Cranfield University, DE&S, UKCeB and the MoD/Industry HFI Working Group.
This year the focus was on people who have helped to make HFI accessible. Brigadier Steve Vickery, Head of the Defence Technology School at the Defence Academy of the UK, presented the award on behalf of the Defence HFI community. Steve Harmer is a successful HFI practitioner, with a career spanning BAE Systems, MBDA and BMT Defence Services. He has also been a champion for improving the development and application of Human Factors across Defence. The many testimonials in support of his nomination praised Steve’s ability to make it obvious why and how HFI should be applied, gaining the support of project teams and customers.
