It is a privilege to announce below (in alphabetical order) the shortlisted entries for Swansea University’s Research & Innovation Awards 2024.

Building on the success of the last Awards, the level of interest and response this year has been truly staggering, attracting over 100 applications from all sections of our research community.

Shortlisting the award entries across all categories was made extremely challenging by the high quality of applications received. These have been reviewed and scored by a panel of Swansea University peers. Our sincere thanks to all those that have participated, sharing information on their amazing work, and congratulations to all shortlisted entries who will join us on the evening.
