Scottish Knowledge Exchange Awards trophies.

The people and partnerships behind ground-breaking innovations were in the spotlight this week with the unveiling of the shortlist for the 2024 Scottish Knowledge Exchange Awards.

Organised by business-academic matchmaking organisation Interface, the awards celebrate successful partnerships at the cutting-edge of research and development. The partnerships involve universities, colleges and research institutions collaborating with businesses and other organisations to change lives in Scotland and beyond.

Applications can come from any of the partners who are asked to demonstrate a positive impact on the economy, society, and the environment.

This year’s awards ceremony will take place at The Royal Conservatoire of Scotland in Glasgow on 14 March, when the winners will be presented with awards in seven categories.

The full list of finalists can be found on the Interface website.
