An annual celebration of the very best initiatives in Knowledge Exchange, the PraxisAuril KE Awards, sponsored by UKRI, have announced the 23 finalists for this year’s Awards – the winners of which will be announced in a digital ceremony on 24 June.

Celebrating the impact of the PraxisAuril research base regionally, nationally and internationally has particular significance this year, as UK universities and research organisations mobilise exceptional activities and projects to fight the COVID-19 crisis.

Included in the shortlist are two KTP-related initiatives: The KTP Between British Salt and the University of Manchester is a finalist in the KE Partnership of the Year category; and Manchester Metropolitan University is a finalist in the KE Internal Initiative category for its “One stop shop KTP” initiative.

As with the KE Awards, our own KTP Best of the Best Awards (shortlist to be announced in July; winners on September 9th) provide an annual spotlight to celebrate positive impact. This year 6 categories are being contested in the KTP Best of the Best Awards (including a new Societal Impact Award), and PraxisAuril is supporting The Most Innovative Initiative by a KB Team category.

Find out more about the PraxisAuril finalists here. Good luck to them all!
