Since 2014 the MRS Operations Awards have sought to recognise the ‘unsung heroes’ of research – the operations professionals who are fundamental to keeping the sector running.

The Covid-19 pandemic has challenged their talents in ways few ever imagined they would be, so this year’s ‘Oppies’ will be a celebration of change, resilience and survival.

The judges want to hear stories of how businesses adapted and flexed to work within the ever-evolving guidelines, how quality and standards were maintained when everything else was in flux and how you supported the people at the forefront of research.

SEE THE CATEGORIES AND ENTER BY 4PM ON THURSDAY 31 MAY
