The awards took place in Queen's Whitla Hall and the Judging Panel was made up of staff from across the University as well as a student representative and assessed all nominations against the award criteria. 

Queen's is number one in the UK for its participation in the Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP) Programme and this year became the first university to achieve a portfolio of 50 live KTPs. The KTP Team has played a key role in that success by supporting academic and professional services staff to manage and deliver a portfolio worth £5.2m per year. The team leads KTP activity, influencing KTP policy development and supporting the Northern Ireland business community in generating jobs and increasing profits. In the last year, the team has generated 30 high quality, fully salaried graduate jobs many of which will develop the business leaders of the future.

It was a great celebration of our collaugues work throughout the University and we are absolutely delighted to have won this award, well done to all those who were nominated.
