Maynooth University announces the 2024 inaugural staff awards for public engagement. The awards celebrate the efforts of our staff to engage non-academic audiences with the University’s work and the positive societal impacts such engagement can yield.
The University Strategic Plan 2023-28 identifies “Engagement and Partnerships” as one the four key pillars for the University over the next five years. The plan calls for growing our partnerships with society in ways that lead to better outcomes for all.

The 2024 Maynooth University Public Engagement Awards recognise and celebrate the myriad ways in which MU staff partner with the public to heighten and showcase the impact of our university.  For the purposes of this award ‘the public’ encapsulates non-academic external stakeholders such as individuals, communities, nature, representative groups, organisations, policymakers and businesses.

The winners will receive €2,000 to benefit their continued public engagement activity.

Deadline: 1st May, 2024
The winners will be announced in June 2024.
