Knowledge Exchange and Impact Awards: still time to get involved

September 25th, 2023

There’s still time to get involved in the Knowledge Exchange and Impact (KEI) awards 2024.

Just a few weeks remain before the application deadline for the prestigious awards, which recognise and celebrate knowledge exchange and impact arising from all disciplines at the university.

Organisers of the KEI awards, which take place in February 2024, are pleased by the response so far, with a range of entries reflecting different disciplines. And, with the impending deadline of Monday 16 October, anyone wishing to shine the spotlight on a significant research-related collaboration between universities and external partners still has time to apply.

The 2024 ceremony will be the fourth KEI Awards for Nottingham – but the first since 2018, when the Covid-19 pandemic put the awards on hold. As the brainchild of the IP Commercialisation office within R&I, the awards present an exciting opportunity for researchers to celebrate their achievements with colleagues and raise awareness of the exceptional work that is taking place.

There are seven different award categories, covering Knowledge Exchange and impact – be it commercial, societal, or policy. They include one category for each of the university’s five faculties – Arts, Engineering, Medicine and Health Sciences, Science, and Social Sciences – as well as a “Rising Star” award and a Vice Chancellor’s award.

It’s easy to make an application to the awards – all entries are made electronically, using nomination forms available at the Knowledge Exchange and Impact awards 2024 SharePoint site.

On the site you’ll find detailed instructions, full details of the award categories and information about the judging process. Key dates for the nomination process are as follows:

  • The entry deadline is Monday 16 October 2023 (midnight UK time).
  • Shortlisted entries will be announced on Wednesday 1 November 2023.
  • The winners will be formally announced, and awards presented, at the ceremony on Thursday 1 February 2024.

The ceremony will be hosted by Vice Chancellor Shearer West at the East Midlands Conference Centre on Thursday 1 February 2024. Professor West said: “The Knowledge Exchange and Impact Awards allow us to recognise the societal and economic impact of our research in its many forms.

“Every faculty across the university participates in research, and I look forward to celebrating our success alongside colleagues, collaborators, funders and beneficiaries.”

More information about the awards, as well as entry forms, can be found at the Knowledge Exchange and Impact Awards 2024 SharePoint site.

Alternatively, anyone who has questions or would like to speak to someone about the awards in more detail can contact the team.
