2017 RTPI research awards open for entry

Words: Laura Edgar

The 2017 RTPI Awards for Research Excellence are open for entries from all RTPI-accredited planning schools and planning consultancies in the UK, the Republic of Ireland and internationally.

There are five categories in the awards:

  • Academic Award
  • Early Career Researcher Award
  • Student Award
  • Planning Consultancy Award
  • Sir Peter Hall Award for Wider Engagement

The Sir Peter Hall award was launched in 2015 in recognition of Hall’s commitment to promoting the art and science of town and country planning.

Dr Michael Harris, head of research at the RTPI, said: “The RTPI Awards for Research Excellence recognise and promote quality, impactful spatial planning research from accredited planning schools and planning consultancies to a wider audience of policymakers and practitioners, as it plays such a critical role in shaping planning policy and practice.”

The deadline for entries to the awards is 19 May 2017.

The institute has also invited RTPI-accredited planning schools to nominate one judge for the awards. The nomination must be received by 19 May.

Idox and Routledge/Taylor & Francis are sponsoring the awards.
