Nominations are now open for the Knowledge Exchange Awards 2022

This October, the Knowledge Exchange Awards will recognise and celebrate the best collaborations between University of Exeter researchers and external partners regionally, nationally, and globally.

The awards will see three shortlisted projects in each of seven categories, as judged by a panel of senior University staff and external reviewers. All shortlisted nominees will be invited to the award ceremony on Thursday 20 October at the Great Hall, Streatham Campus.

Nominations are now open, with research colleagues across the University invited to nominate their projects before the deadline on Monday 4 July 2022 at 8am. We are particularly looking for projects which demonstrate the impactful collaborations that exist between University researchers and external partners. We encourage entries which focus on innovative knowledge exchange and have exciting potential for the future, as well as established projects.
