Call for Nominations: the Institute for Policy and Engagement Awards

January 16th, 2023

Do you know someone who’s doing great work on policy impact or public engagement? Have you been doing work yourself that you think deserves recognition? If yes, this is an opportunity to nominate yourself or a colleague.

The Institute for Policy and Engagement is delighted to announce the fourth Policy Impact and Public Engagement Awards.

These awards aim to recognise the excellent work by staff on all University of Nottingham campuses in achieving policy impact and engaging the public with current UoN research.

Visit our website to see previous winners.

We invite both self-nominations and nominations made on behalf of peers and colleagues. This year, we’re expanding recognition of excellence by adding a new award category, the Best School Engagement Initiative, which recognizes successful public engagement activities or initiatives involving pupils at school or college.

There are six award categories:

  • Best Policy Impact Initiative
  • Best Public Engagement Initiative
  • Rising Star Award – Policy Impact (for early career researchers)
  • Rising Star Award – Public Engagement  (for early career researchers)
  • The Institute Director’s Award (for non-academic staff who have played a key role in the success of policy impact or public engagement work)
  • Best School Engagement Initiative

Nominations are open- please use the links below to nominate as many colleagues in as many categories as you choose. Use a separate form for each nomination.
