Knowledge Transfer Ireland is calling for submissions to its 2018 Impact Awards. In this annual competition, technology transfer offices in Ireland’s research performing organisations (universities, institutes of technology and other state funded organisations) are invited to submit examples of the successes that they have achieved in the previous year which are reviewed by an international panel of judges.
Across six categories, the awards recognise top performance in industry engagement and commercialisation of research and they pay tribute to the businesses and research performing organisations involved in knowledge transfer.
Speaking about the call for submissions, Dr Alison Campbell, Director of Knowledge Transfer Ireland said, “I am delighted once again to open the call for submissions for the KTI Impact Awards 2018. Last year we received entries about some truly impressive projects that were the successful result of industry and research working together. It also provided us with an opportunity to celebrate the achievements of innovative leaders in the growing field of knowledge transfer. I have no doubt that this will year we will receive nominations of equally high calibre.”
Technology Transfer Offices and Industry Liaison Offices based at higher education institutes around the country have until Friday 26th January to submit their applications. Submissions will be evaluated by an international judging panel in Dublin on Tuesday 5th March. A shortlist of finalists will be revealed on 7th March 2017 and the winners will be announced at an awards ceremony in Royal Hospital Kilmainham in Dublin on Thursday 26th April 2018.
