PRME UK & Ireland Chapter Research Seed Funding Competition Winners 2018/2019

Announcement of winners

We are delighted to announce details of the winners of our first UK & Ireland Chapter Research Seed Funding Competition. The Chapter received 16 valid entries for the Seed Funding Competition from all across the membership. The judging panel reviewed all entries, and observed that the standard was in general very high, with a great diversity of approach and focus. Five awards were made, two to early-career researchers, as follows:

  • Aurore  Bardey, University of the Arts of London. Topic: Fighting against counterfeit consumerism

  • Soheil Davari, University of Hertfordshire. Topic: Identifying and reducing inequalities in access to care and support for the elderly: A quantitative approach

  • Mikko  Laamanen, University of London. Topic: Enabling Citizen Organising for Sustainable Transitions (ECOST)

  • Darren  McGuire , University of Stirling. Topic: Exposing modern slavery policy-making to management theory

  • Lila  Skountridaki, University of Stirling Management School . Topic: Integrating the SDGs in HEI degrees accredited by Professional Associations


We look forward very much to seeing how these projects develop throughout the year, and in particular to seeing the interim reports from the researchers at the 2019 Annual Conference. Thanks to all who entered, and who were involved in judging. It is very gratifying to see so much early-stage research addressing PRME and the SDGs.
