Sponsors announced for Swansea University Impact Awards 2015
We are pleased to announce that Parthian Books and the Library of Wales will sponsor the Award for Outstanding Impact in Culture and the Arts for the 2015 Swansea University Impact Awards.
The Impact Awards celebrate the ways in which the University’s research makes a difference to society, the benefits it brings, and the influence it has on individuals, communities, industry, and policy development.
The Awards recognise outstanding impact across six categories, which are open to University staff, researchers at all career stages, as well as research groups, partnerships and projects.
The Impact Awards form part of a programme of activities supported by the University’s Impact Acceleration Account, sponsored by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council.
Chris Marshall, who project manages the Impact Acceleration Account, said: “The University is very grateful to the organisations that have chosen to sponsor the event and made it possible to recognise publicly the achievements of our researchers.
“The University was founded by industry in 1920, with a remit to deliver research for industry. The results of the Research Excellence Framework 2014 showed that Swansea ranked 22nd in the UK for research impact, so it is clearly still in our DNA to deliver research that impacts on the wider world.”
The Swansea University Impact Awards will take place on the 18th June, at the Marriott Hotel, Swansea.
