The President’s Award for Outstanding Performance in Knowledge Transfer was established to recognize, encourage and reward individual academic and teaching staff members and teams who demonstrate the translation of University-owned knowledge, expertise, and innovation and technology to practical use by society through outstanding knowledge transfer (KT) activities. These activities have led to the fulfilment of social responsibility, profitability, or economic or social improvements. The impact of the activities may be academic, professional, social or policy-related on education or other sectors at the local, national or international levels. The Award committee considers evidence of excellence in KT in a variety of contexts. The aim of the Award is to honour established individual academic staff members or teams who demonstrated excellence in KT in the two years preceding the Award.
