Nominations are now open for QMUL's Engagement and Impact Awards 2021! The awards recognise and reward excellence in public engagement and impact activities happening at Queen Mary. Deadline for nominations 28 April.
The Engagement and Impact Awards recognise and reward excellence in public engagement and impact activities happening at Queen Mary. The awards offer an opportunity to celebrate the successes of Queen Mary students, staff and their external partners, and highlight where their work has contributed to, and had an impact on, wider society.
The Engagement and Impact Awards are broken down into two main award categories: the Public Engagement Awards and the Impact Awards. Each category has six awards which are designed to celebrate the spectrum of activities happening at Queen Mary, and enable all staff and students at the University submit nominations regardless of their career stage.
The Awards are open for nominations for projects led or co-led by students and staff across all Queen Mary and must have work happening at the University at the heart of it (such as research, teaching, or other core business activities).
Applications are sought from all Queen Mary departmentst and from individuals at any career stage. There is one award in the 'Impact' category in which career stage is considered a judging criteria (Trailblazer); otherwise this will not be taken in to consideration.
We welcome self-nominations and nominations from others: including nominations from those outside of Queen Mary, and the route of nomination will not be used as a judging criteria. We do request that you notify anyone that you nominate so they are aware that their application is being considered.
