Thank you to all the entrants for the 2022 HECA Student Research Awards. It is impressive to observe the range of disciplines and standard of research from students across the HECA member HEIs.

The HECA Board, the HECA Research Committee and the Judging Panel of the HSRA Digital Poster would like to thank all student entries for sharing and showcasing your research work.

Submissions were overwhelming of the static digital poster format and therefore the winning awards and short-listing reflects these entries. Like last year, the decision-making was tough, but after considered discussions, the Judging Panel are thrilled to announce the winners of the HSRA Digital Poster Exhibition as follows:

The 2022 HSRA Trophy - Cash Prize of €300
