Internal awards & competitions

The University offers two Institutional Awards for Excellence in Public Engagement: The Alice Roberts’ Award for PGR Excellence in PER and The Light of Understanding Award. Both will be awarded for the first time in 2019 and presented at our annual public engagement conference, PER Day, on 5th April, by Alice Roberts, Birmingham’s very own Professor of Public Engagement with Science. Awardees in both schemes will receive funds to further their public engagement work. Find out more below.

There are also other Internal Award Schemes that recognise Public Engagement, including; the Research Impact Awards, the Graduate School’s Images of Research Competition, 3 Minute Thesis and the College of MDS’s PERCAT Award for Excellence in Public Engagement. Get in touch to find out more.
