S.E.T. for socio-economic growth
1a) In regard to a further nomination for a winner in any of the Emerging Researcher or Researcher or Management or Lifetime categories, the period of new work should be appropriate for the new nomination and the previous work discounted.
1b) In regard to a winner in the Engineering Research Capacity Development award, the award recognises the merit of the nominee’s work in addition to the capacity development achieved. Thus a further nomination in other categories should discount the work considered for the previous award and be appropriate for the new award.
1c) In regard to winners of the Data for Research award, this is regarded as a standalone award; nevertheless where the nature of the contribution previously awarded included the collection of data, should a nomination in another category be considered at some stage, the original collection would have to be discounted.
1d) Previous winners of the Innovation awards, must simply base any further nomination on new work.
1e) A previous winner of the Communication award can submit a later nomination in this and other categories but should then discount their communication work on which the earlier winning award was based.
1f) Where a winner is included in a team which forms the subject of another nomination in the same year or a later year, the nominator must take deliberate and explicit steps to exclude the work which is to be/was recognised in the award to the individual winner.
