The KE Awards

Amplifying the Achievements of the Knowledge Exchange Profession

The KE Awards embody the high standard of UK Knowledge Exchange and recognise the people, partnerships, deals and intiatives that generate this world-class activity. 

The KE Awards, organised by PraxisAuril, celebrate the people who help to initiate and deliver impact and outcomes from publicly funded research through a divere range of partners and activities. Each year entrants from across the KE profession share their successes with us through a range of categories, which are judged by an expert panel to discern the years finalists and winners. These are celebrated at a dedicated awards ceremony in November, presented in partnership with Awards Sponsors, UKRI.

Sponsored by UK Research and Innovation (UKRI), UKRI creates knowledge with impact by investing over £7bn a year in research and innovation through the UK's nine leading funding councils. 

"As a steward to the Research and Innovation ecosystem, UK Research and Innovation is delighted to partner with PraxisAuril to recognise and reward all those involved in realising the impact from research through knowledge exchange. KE professionals play an important role helping research to make an impact on society and the economy." - Dr Tony Soteriou, Director of Commercialisation, UKRI
