IG Work Psychology Innovation Awards for masters students



Congratulations to Yasmine Ayane (MSc Occupational Psychology 2016-17) who won the annual IG Work Psychology Innovation Award in February for her research on the personality factors associated with resilience in firefighters.

The awards ceremony featured two other students from Nottingham - Sanika Dabholkar (MSc Work and Organisational Psychology 2016-17) who was a runner up, and Theodore Ho (MSc Management Psychology 2016-17) who was short-listed.

The Award process

Each year, UK universities prominent in work-related psychology studies are invited to nominate up to three of their best MSC research projects for the IG Work Psychology Innovation Award.

The students create a poster summarising their research, and judges from industry and the universities get the chance to question the students before each drawing up a shortlist of their top three projects, based on three criteria: innovation (is the research new?); research quality (is the methodology sound, are the conclusions justified by the data?); and practical application (could this be used in the workplace?).

The judges then compare shortlists before agreeing a winner, who receives a £1,000 cash prize. All of the nominated MSc students are also invited to attend Indigogold’s annual industry networking event.
