Now in its sixth year, the Scottish Knowledge Exchange Awards celebrate the exceptional work achieved through academic and business partnerships.
Hosted by Interface, the business-academic matchmaker in Scotland, the Awards ceremony will be held online on World Creativity and Innovation Day.
Applications were invited in eight categories – the largest number yet – from businesses, public sector organisations, third sector, universities, research institutes and colleges that are in leading the way towards economic growth, societal improvements and environmental advances in Scotland and beyond.
Two new categories have been unveiled – one to showcase the incredible business-academic response to the COVID-19 pandemic and a second will shine the spotlight on an individual or team behind the scenes who have been pivotal in forging impactful business-academic partnerships.
The categories are:
Innovation of the Year
Knowledge Exchange Champion
Making a Difference
Innovator of the Future
Knowledge Exchange Heroes
COVID-19 Collaboration Response
Speakers will be announced shortly.
