The Research and Enterprise Office manages two sets of awards that celebrate the achievements of colleagues across the University.
One recognises the strength of our research; the other, the breadth of our external partnerships. Both celebrate the far-reaching impacts of our work.
The CALIBRE Awards – launched in 2019 – recognise the breadth and diversity of research across our campuses, celebrating the impact of both teams and individuals. The triannual Awards are themed, reflecting strategically important areas of work – including (to date) open research, equality and diversity, and international collaborations. Calls for nominations go out via ADRs, and the winners are decided by public vote.
The biennial Enterprise Awards – running since 2009 – celebrate our external partnerships: collaborations that deliver far-reaching social, economic and cultural impact. The nominations are divided by categories including (most recently) Impact, Commercial Potential and Partnerships. There is also a category to recognise the achievements of our student and graduate entrepreneurs. The winners are decided by a combination of public vote and judging panel.
