Nominations now open for BBSRC Innovator of the Year

Have you worked with a BBSRC-funded researcher who has stepped outside the lab to realise the potential of their research?

Nominate them, or their team, for a BBSRC Innovator of the Year Award!

Nomination deadline: 29 October 2015
Application deadline: 19 January 2016

The BBSRC Innovator of the Year competition recognises and rewards individuals and small teams who have harnessed the potential of their excellent research, within three categories:

  • Commercial
  • Social
  • Most promising

It is designed to recognise the full breadth of impacts that BBSRC-funded research can have.

Winners in each category will receive a £15,000 award, with a further £15,000 for the overall winner.

The awards will be presented at a high-profile event in London on 18 May 2016 in front of an invited audience of leading figures from the worlds of investment, industry, government, charity and academia.
