BBSRC Innovator of the Year Awards - apply by 15 February

last modified Feb 03, 2017 12:33 PM
This competition recognises and rewards individuals and small teams who have harnessed the potential of their BBSRC-funded research. This year the categories also include early career researcher innovators.

The award categories are:

  • 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, to working in collaboration with business, to social enterprise 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 competition is open to all researchers funded by BBSRC within the past six years, including:

  • PhD students and postdoctoral researchers funded by BBSRC through studentships, fellowships or research grants
  • Principal investigators or co-investigators on a research grant funded by BBSRC
  • Holders of any BBSRC-funded fellowship
  • Researchers in institutes receiving strategic funding from BBSRC

For team entries, at least half of the team should meet the above entry requirements. Where there are non-eligible individuals who have played a significant part in helping deliver impact, their role in assisting the eligible individual(s) should be made clear in the application.

For all entries, applicants must demonstrate the connection between their BBSRC-funded research and the impact generated or expected.

The call for applications is open until 15 February 2017, 4pm.

For more information and to apply please visit the BBSRC website.
