LJMU has triumphed in two of three categories at the first-ever Global Project Competition.

The competition recognises some of the exceptional societal, economic, environmental and cultural impact delivered by researchers around the world, with entries drawn from projects live on the global collaboration platform.

With three categories open to contestants, Dr Emma Ashworth and Dr Joanna Kirkby from our School of Psychology triumphed in the People’s Choice for Most Engaging Project category for their work on Act, Listen, Act.

The project was conducted across a range of schools in Liverpool, analysing the impact of the pandemic on children with SEND (Special Educational Needs and Disabilities) and delivering priorities for policy and practice to support recovery going forward.

We were also recognised with the Most Overall Votes prize for our collective entries, driven by our wide range of impact projects including the work of our FaceLab. spoke with Impact Officer Emily Walker and pupils from Liverpool Hope School. Watch the videos on the 2022 Project Competition Winners’ Showcase.
