The Knowledge Exchange and Impact Awards 2016

About the Awards 


Event Background

The inaugural Knowledge Exchange and Innovation Awards dinner in 2014 proved a huge success and a fitting celebration of the outstanding innovation that is happening across The University of Nottingham.

The second awards event, renamed the Knowledge Exchange and Impact Awards, and now incorporating the Media Awards, took place on Thursday, 5 May 2016 at the East Midlands Conference Centre. As anticipated there was a great deal of interest from across the University and from our external stakeholders.

The awards were well attended by entrepreneurs and business partners from across the region, as well as many of our academics who showed their support and recognition of the successes the University has in the area of knowledge exchange and impact.
