KTI’s annual Impact Awards recognise significant achievements in the commercialisation of publicly funded research nationwide and engagement with research system across the third level and other similar State research institutions.
In particular, the awards acknowledge and celebrate the Innovation Offices / Technology Transfer Offices (TTOs) and their staff on-the-ground who make this knowledge transfer and commercialisation happen.
The 2021 Impact Awards will be presented across three categories at a virtual awards ceremony:
- Commercialisation Impact Award
- Industry Engagement Impact Award
- Future Forward Impact Award
Guests at the awards ceremony will have the chance to choose the finalist that they think is most deserving for the People’s Choice Award in a live vote that will take place at the end of the awards presentation.
