The Research2Business Collaborative Impact award recognises and celebrates researchers in Irish publicly-funded research performing organisations (RPOs) who have developed successful collaborative research engagement with the business community. Through these endeavours researchers will have delivered impact for the businesses with whom they have worked as well as for their own organisation.
Timing: The demonstrable impact or success resulting from the collaboration must have been realised in 2016. However the collaboration itself may have taken place or begun in prior years.
Awards presented to: the company; the lead researcher; the TTO/ILO.
