Warwick Technician Commitment Award for Outstanding Achievement

We are pleased to launch the quarterly Warwick Technician Commitment Award for Outstanding Achievement. This celebrates the fantastic work our technical staff do across research, teaching and within our infrastructure, without which Warwick would not operate.

We encourage any member of staff or student to nominate a technical member of staff for achievements big or small, or to celebrate work that is unsung but still immensely important.

Nominations can be made at any time. Four times a year we will select awardees from the nominations received. These individuals will receive a certificate and vouchers to celebrate their achievements.

Alongside this, twice a year we will welcome nominations for team awards. The expectation is that a team will have worked on a common goal to achieve success. The team will receive our Team Trophy, and will be rewarded with a congratulatory team lunch at the conference centres on campus.

We have provided eligibility, guidance and further information below the nomination form, but if you have any questions, please contact
