MPLS Impact Awards
The annual MPLS Impact Awards aim to foster and raise awareness of impact by rewarding it at a local level, and preparing the ground for the impact case studies that will be needed for REF 2021, and future similar exercises.
Awards are presented at the MPLS Winter Reception, with a pay award of £1,000 (minus taxes) made to the individual.
In 2017-18 there were four categories of award:
Category 1: To recognise researchers at any career stage for research that has had significant commercial (economic) impact since 1 August 2013.
Category 2: To recognise researchers at any career stage for research that has had significant non-commercial impact since 1 August 2013.
Category 3: To recognise Early Career Researchers’ independent engagement with external organisations or end-users, as laying the foundations for future impactful research.
Category 4: To recognise researchers at any career stage who have achieved significant impact since 1 August 2013 through high-quality public engagement with research activities.
The deadline for the 2017-18 awards has now passed. Any queries should be directed to Dr Lizzie Peachey (Assistant Registrar - Planning & Research Impact) at email@example.com.
