Research Awards 2023

Nominate NOW for this year's Research Awards ceremony!

Each year during the Hopkins Centre's Bold Ideas Better Solutions symposium, we take time to recognise the outstanding work of our Hopkins members, researchers, clinicians and citizen researchers, with the annual Research Awards ceremony. 

We invite you to nominate an outstanding Hopkins member, clinician and researcher in any of the following categories!

Research Translation Award
The annual Hopkins Centre Translational Research Award acknowledges the value of collaboration and productive interdisciplinary research links between practice, academia and industry, and the importance of research having translational potential. This Award recognises research and evaluation projects that demonstrate translational impact or have potential to translate into better practices, health service delivery, and ultimately, contribute to improving the wellbeing of people with complex health needs or lifelong disabling conditions. 

Early Career Researcher Award

This Award is for outstanding achievements for an early career researcher (ECR) post PhD, in contributions to advancing The Hopkins Centre research programs and reputation as a leading disability and rehabilitation research centre.

Emerging Research Award
The Emerging Researcher Award recognises evidence of excellence in research productivity relative to opportunity, at an early stage of the individual’s research career, irrespective of post-graduate qualifications. They have also demonstrated the ability to inspire, excite, and engage others in research, including colleagues, clients, and consumers.


Research Champion Award
This Award recognises a Hopkins member who exhibits the values and objectives of The Hopkins Centre in their work and engagement with others.


Citizen Researcher Award
The Citizen Research Award acknowledges the hard work, research and advocacy of the citizen
researchers in The Hopkins Centre research, to ensure research is meaningful, co-designed,
relevant and informed.


You can nominate as many times as you like and all nominations are anonymous.

Underneath is the title Research Awards and then other words describing the research awards in white lettering. Running vertically across the bottom of the tile is a turquoise line. Taking up the right 1/4 of the tile, covering the black background is the Hopkins hero image of the earth with golden arches connecting different land masses.
