Innovation and Impact Awards

Our Innovation and Impact Awards celebrate our successful collaborations and links with business.

Each year we celebrate our collaborations through our Innovation and Impact Awards. Winners are carefully selected based on the innovation, impact and added value arising from the collaboration, and can be large businesses or small companies, social enterprises or government organisations, charities or public bodies.

The winning collaborations were celebrated at a prestigious Awards Dinner on 22 June 2016, attended by Mark Wilson, Executive Vice President, Aston Martin Lagonda Ltd. Mark also presented the People's Choice Award, voted for by the public via social media, which went to Panalpina and Cardiff Business School for their lean inventories KTP project.
