Innovation and Engagement Award


The collaborative work of the Cancer RRG, Marie Curie Palliative Care Research Centre (MCPCRC), Involving People and NISCHR CRC has won 2 Innovation and Engagement Awards from the TIME Institute at Cardiff University. This award is for researchers who have maximised the impact of their research through public engagement, business innovation, impacting on science policy and engagement with the media beyond the normal expectations of their role. The first award was presented to the group in 2013 for their Palliative Care Research Roadshow initiative, where the team visited every healthboard in Wales to ensure palliative care clinical teams were aware of research opportunities, and also for the introduction of the Research Methodology Clinics. The second award was presented in January 2014 in recognition of their sustained program of work to involve the public in research.
