Whilst there are a whole host of benefits to getting involved in Public Engagement, it’s wonderful when that engagement activity is recognised and rewarded. All kinds of recognition are important, from the day-to-day, to promotions, to special awards and competitions. For the day-to-day and promotions, we encourage all researchers to record all of their PER activity (which can be done through PURE and linked to funding, publications etc, please ask us if you need advice on this). However, we also love to see staff and students being nominated for and winning special awards and competitions. We advertise all current schemes that we know of through our newsletter, but you can also find details of our Internal Awards (which include prize money!) and some External Award Schemes below. And if you know of others, or need help with an application or nomination, please tell us!
