This award acknowledges university departments that are most active in embedding a culture that recognises the importance of economic and social impact alongside excellent research.
Selected departments are being monitored over a period of two years from 1 December 2008 to 1 December 2010.
Two prizes will be awarded to:
- The department that has been most effective in introducing a significant culture change, which values impact as well as research excellence
- The department that best demonstrates the delivery of economic and social impact over the period
Winners will be announced at an awards event in central London in March 2011.
