Innovation and Impact Awards

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

HoI design

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.

Partner organisations vary, from large businesses to small companies, social enterprises or government organisations and charities or public bodies, reflecting the diversity of work and the power of partnerships.

The pandemic has led us to cancel our 2020 Innovation and Impact Awards. In their place, we have opted to highlight six partnerships, recognised as exemplars of innovation and collaboration, and their success will be showcased, digitally.

Highlighted partnerships

The projects highlight the University’s work to connect, collaborate and create as it builds a future #HomeofInnovation campus to boost wellbeing in Wales.

Ranging across life sciences, business, humanities and government at international, national and local levels, these collaborations illustrate our commitment to working with all sectors, and the impact we can achieve by working in partnership:
