N8 new pioneers

N8 new pioneers banner

From 6th to 19th January, N8 will be entering the new decade with a celebration of the rising research stars across the N8 universities – the ‘New Pioneers’ of research in the North.

The N8 Research Partnership is a collaboration of the eight most research intensive universities in the North of England. Among the 19,000 academic staff and 17,000 research postgraduates across the N8, there spans a wealth of experience and expertise in areas across the physical, life and environmental sciences, engineering, social sciences, the arts and humanities and more.

With innovation and collaboration at the forefront of N8's aims as a partnership, they would like to highlight and celebrate some of our exceptional early careers researchers – rising stars who have already made unique or pioneering advances in their research field, or are creating real world impact through their work by partnering with industry and society. 

If you know of any Early Career Researchers who are doing excellent work please submit your nomination by 5pm on 14th December.
Nominations do not have to be linked to N8 activity.
