The UCC Research Awards Programme has been established to recognise the extensive contributions made by UCC researchers across all fields. They recognise and celebrate those UCC researchers who have made exceptional and very influential research contributions, pushing boundaries, enhancing knowledge, and raising the national and international research profile of the University.
The UCC Research Awards will embrace all research, across the entire University Research Community, from all disciplines. There are five individual annual Research Awards recognising:
- Researcher of the Year,
- Early Stage Researcher of the Year,
- Research Support Person of the Year,
- Research Supervisor of the Year
- Research Communicator of the Year
In addition, there is one annual team Research Award:
- Research Team of the Year.
On an occasional basis, a Career Achievement Research Award will be presented. All UCC research staff are eligible for nomination, irrespective of contract status.
