The University of Birmingham has recently been awarded a gold at the Engage Watermark Awards.
Organised by the National Co-ordinating Centre for Public Engagement (NCCPE), the Award recognises the University’s public engagement work and the impact it has on a local and regional scale.
The NCCPE said that the University of Birmingham had demonstrated a desire to work purposefully, and in partnership with the communities and organisations of Birmingham, to contribute to the regeneration and flourishing of the region. This builds on a silver awarded in 2018.
You can find out more about the award here and hear from Professor Alice Roberts who accepted the award on the University’s behalf:
Here’s what our Vice-Chancellor had to say:
“We pride ourselves on the impact that we have on the city and the Midlands region, not only as one of Birmingham’s biggest employers but through our research and our relationships with civic partners, communities and businesses.“
Professor Adam Tickell, Vice-Chancellor, University of Birmingham
Special thanks to all of the researchers and members of the public who have taken part in engagement activities with us over the years!
