Now celebrating its 10th year, this competition recognises and rewards individuals and small teams who have harnessed the potential of their excellent research.
The competition has four award categories:
- Commercial Impact
- Social Impact
- International Impact
- Early Career Impact
It is designed to recognise the full breadth of impacts that BBSRC investments in research have, from creation of spinout companies or social enterprises, to working in collaboration with business and NGOs, to working with policy makers, both in the UK and abroad.
Winners in each category will receive a £10,000 award, with a further £10,000 for the overall winner, the BBSRC Innovator of the Year.
The awards will be presented at a high-profile event in London on 16 May 2018 in front of an invited audience of leading figures from the worlds of investment, industry, government, charity and academia.
