Vitae Impact, Culture and Engagement (ICE) Award nominations – deadline Friday 16 June 2023!

Do you have a colleague who has been instrumental in creating impact in the development of researchers or improving research culture?   

Are you aware of a highly engaging project or initiative which has been implemented in an innovative way?   

Is there a peer that you would like to celebrate who has made great strides in supporting marginalised groups or driving inclusion in the development of researchers?  

We want to hear about them!   

The inaugural Vitae Impact, Culture and Engagement (ICE) Awards will celebrate and amplify the impactful and innovative work being done by the researcher development community. The deadline for nominations is fast approaching so if you have been meaning to nominate, please do so via our short form.   

The four award categories are:  

  • Newcomer of the Year   
  • Outstanding Contribution   
  • Research Culture Impact through Researcher Development   
  • Innovative and Inclusive Practice   

We are particularly keen to hear about nominations for the Innovative and Inclusive Practice award. This award champions practice within researcher development that demonstrates inventive approaches to complex challenges, and that contributes towards achieving equity of access to researcher development opportunities and support. 

An award ceremony will take place for the winners on Monday 25 September during the Vitae International Researcher Development Conference Gala dinner at the Revolution Manchester Gallery.  

Read about why we are celebrating researcher development in our latest blog “Recognising and celebrating the researcher development profession”.
