The Knowledge Translation Team at the Centre for Community Child Health, a department of The Royal Children’s Hospital and a research group of the Murdoch Children’s Research Institute, has been recognised on the global stage for their commitment to improving child and adolescent health and wellbeing.
The team won the Driving the Impact Agenda category at the Real Impact Awards announced in the UK this week.
The awards aim to raise the profile of individuals, teams and institutions that have placed real impact at the top of their agenda; recognise innovative approaches to impact; celebrate interdisciplinary research; bridge the gap between research and practice; and tell real impact success stories and showcase those driving the debate.
The judges recognised the Knowledge Translation Team for their commitment to building a culture that values, rewards and embeds research impact.
“Delivering customised training, resources and mentoring alongside engaging with local, national and international impact networks are just some examples of the great work the team have carried out,” they said.
“Research impact is now a prominent part of the campus agenda and is helping us to achieve our purpose of improving child and adolescent health and wellbeing.”
All 2019 finalists and winners will be featured in the Real Impact Awards Showcase book.
The winners will also be invited to attend a celebratory event in early 2020, where they will be awarded with a certificate, trophy and their copy of the showcase book.
