Prof Philippe De Wilde, the DVC Research & Innovation, has today issued the call for nominations for the 2017 University Research Prizes.
The Research Prizes were launched in Kent’s fiftieth anniversary year (2015), and have already recognised a wide range of outstanding research across the University. Details of the winners from 2015 and 2016 are available via the links.
This year we are aligning the categories more closely to those offered by the touchstone of excellent research in Europe, the EuropeanResearch Council (ERC).
Thus, the categories are as follows:
- Advanced Research Prize: Nominees must have 12 or more years of experience since completion of PhD, be leaders in their respective field(s) of research and must demonstrate significant achievement in the last 10 years.
- Consolidator Research Prize: Nominees must have 7-12 years of experience since completion of PhD, and a track record showing research talent.
- Starting Research Prize: Nominees must have less than 7 years of experience since completion of PhD, and a research track record that shows great promise. Both permanent academic staff, fellows and researchers may apply.
- Postgraduate Research Prize: for doctoral students.
