As part of this year's Research Week (19-22 June), ARC KSS would like to recognise and celebrate collaboration in applied health and social care research during the last 12-18 months. We want to showcase the importance of new, existing and wide -ranging collaborations, unusual partnerships and working together to influence practice for the benefit of patients, communities and the public.
The competition has three categories each judged in their own merit:
1. Excellence in collaborative research: Innovative approaches or projects that can only be done through collaboration.
2. Implementing research into practice through collaborative partnerships.
3. Working with the public and/or communities in research, including creative and innovative ways of working together.
In this competition, researchers are invited to submit a poster that should include an introduction to the project and collaboration, aims, objectives, what has been achieved so far, what has been learnt through collaboration and what has excited the collaboration. All entries will be judged by a panel drawn from ARC KSS’s Organisation and Research Capacity Group (ORCA), Developing Research Careers Group and Public Advisors.
The winners will be invited to present their poster at the ARC KSS Research Week- Symposium on 22 June 2023 at the University of Kent, Canterbury. All other poster entries will be available to view on the ARC KSS website throughout ARC KSS Research Week (19-22 June) and a selection displayed at the Research Week Symposium.
The winners will receive a £150 training bursary and second prize winners a £100 training bursary.
Deadline for competition entry - 5pm, 28 April 2023.
