Real Impact Awards 2020

The Real Impact Awards give you the opportunity to shine a light on the difference you are making through your research.

Whether you are an individual or team/institution, demonstrating the different ways of thinking – while bringing people together to discover, curate and put into practice research that really matters – is not only important for everyone to see but could also inspire others to want to do more, too.
