The AwardThe Awards

The Impact Awards recognise those teams that have produced outstanding impact through successful knowledge transfer.

The awards, organised by PraxisUnico, recognise and celebrate the success of collaborative working and the process of innovation: the transformation of knowledge and expertise beyond its creation in higher education, charities and public sector research establishments for the wider benefit of society and the economy.

This award recognises projects that have made an outstanding business impact through successful knowledge transfer, where there is evidence of impact delivered.

Business Impact - Aspiring

This award recognises projects that promise to make an outstanding business impact through successful knowledge transfer, but where the impact may still to be fully realised, or is hard to quantify.

Collaborative Impact

This award recognises collaborative projects that leverage the intellectual assets of the research base. Types of projects might include research collaborations or consultancy with business or the public sector and/or knowledge transfer projects involving more than one higher education or research institute.
