Do you know someone working within the environmental sciences sector who deserves to be recognised for their outstanding contribution, their achievements in public life or their commitment to serving and helping Britain?
If you do, create an opportunity for them to receive national recognition for all their hard work by nominating them for a UK honour. Honours are a distinctive way of acknowledging someone’s achievements, rewarding people who have made a real difference to society. UK Research & Innovation is committed to equality, diversity and inclusion. Nominations for women, those with a disability and members of minority ethnic groups are strongly encouraged.
How to make a nomination
Anyone can make a nomination. This is done by providing a brief summary of why you think that individual should receive an honour – this should include scientific achievements, their impact and any additional contributions outside their main line of work. To help us make the strongest possible case, it would be useful if you could provide at least two suggestions of who to contact for letters supporting the nomination, and include a curriculum vitae of the nominee if you have one (please see the note on GDPR below). We may contact you for additional information.
Nominee information for the Queen’s New Year 2021 round should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org by 6 February 2020.
The nomination will then be considered by an independent committee. There is considerable competition for honours, and the assessment is rigorous, so the summary you provide will assist us to complete the citation, which is the most important piece of evidence for the honours committee to consider.
Note: All personal information is protected in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation and the Data Protection Act 2018. As such, information relating to honours is exempt from the requirement to issue a privacy notice or to respond to data subject requests. All nominations are treated in the strictest confidence. The nominee should not be informed that they have been nominated.
