Awards & competitions

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.

The University offers two institutional awards for excellence in Public Engagement The Alice Roberts Award for PGR excellence and The Light of Understanding Award.

All research-active staff are eligible for the awards and group submissions are acceptable. Nominations can be made by anyone and self nominations are highly encouraged. Applications should demonstrate not only a body of public engagement work, but should take care to stipulate where and why the work is of excellent quality.
