The Joshua Phillips Award for Innovation in Science Engagement (The Josh Award) is an award established to recognise and support up-and-coming talent in science communication.
Each year, a winner will receive support to nurture their development in the field and their involvement in Manchester Science Festival. The Award will recognise creativity, vision and innovation in science communication, and contribute to the professionalization of the field.
The Award provides the opportunity to be science communicator in residence at Manchester Science Festival; developing and delivering a new project or event for the Festival and show-casing best practise.
Graphene researcher Dr. Aravind Vijayaraghavan from the University of Manchester has won this year’s Josh Award. Join Aravind at the Manchester Science Festival 2013 for Gigantic Graphene.
