Celebrating Success with a Hashtag #

To celebrate University of Glasgow’s College of Medical, Veterinary and Life Sciences being one of ten finalists in the BBSRC Excellence with Impact Competition, we’re challenging our researchers to #inspire!

We have achieved cultural change through implementing an inspiring vision and now we’d like to hear about your own inspiring research and how it has changed the world.

If you are a member of professional services staff, tell us how you have supported our culture change through identifying, enabling, understanding or publicising impact.

Our MVLS World Changers Competition, supported by Aridhia and Glasgow City of Science challenges our researchers to tweet how their research will change the world, using the #UofGImpact and aim to get as many retweets as possible. We want to empower colleagues to tap into networks and grow an engaged and relevant following to showcase the possibilities of their research and raise their profile.

Winners will be judged on how inspiring their tweet is and the “reach” of their tweet. It’s up to you to plug into as many networks as possible – don’t be shy! Be creative and grab the attention of funders, partners, fellow-researchers, colleagues, participants and encourage them to share your inspirational tweet. Tweets must be sent between the 17 March and 8 April to be considered.


There are fabulous prizes on offer to the winners of our competition. The overall winner of the competition will receive £250 with two runners up receiving £100 each. In addition, the winning entrant will be interviewed and profiled through University of Glasgow, Aridhia and Glasgow City of Science.

Winners will be announced at our BBSRC Excellence with Impact Showcase Day on 13 April 2016 at the Queen Elizabeth Teaching & Learning Centre, Queen Elizabeth University Hospital.
