University shortlisted for three Praxis Auril Knowledge Exchange Awards

The University of Liverpool has been shortlisted for three Praxis Auril Knowledge Exchange 2023 Awards recognising the high standards of UK Knowledge Exchange (KE) and the people, partnerships, deals and initiatives that underpin this world-class activity.

The University’s partnership with the Centre for Process Innovation (CPI) has been shortlisted as a finalist in the KE Strategic Partnership category. CPI is a UK-based deep tech organisation and recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the University of Liverpool to deliver a broad range of research and knowledge exchange projects.

Dr Srijan Jindal, Chief Scientific Officer for University spin-out PhenUtest, has been shortlisted for the Academic Entrepreneur Award. PhenUtest was founded in 2021 and is developing rapid urinary tract infection diagnostic tests to reduce the number of incorrectly prescribed antibiotics and help combat the rise of antimicrobial resistance.

The Civic Data Cooperative (CDC) is a finalist for the Place-based KE Initiative of the Year Award. The CDC was co-created with residents and local organisations in 2020, supported by the Liverpool City Region Combined Authority, and drives data-action innovation with local organisations and businesses to improve public services, health and well-being.

The University is a member of PraxisAuril, the professional association for Knowledge Exchange practitioners. Their global network provides support and training to universities, private and public sector research organisations. The PraxisAuril Knowledge Exchange Awards recognise the people and partnerships that underpin knowledge exchange activities, celebrating outstanding performance, and the winners will be announced on Thursday, 23 November.

The nominations were supported by the Research Partnership and Innovation (RPI) Directorate, who support knowledge exchange and partnership activities across the University.
