The Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) is calling for entries for the 2014 RIBA President's Awards for Research. The RIBA's annual research awards exist to promote the innovation and insight that emerge from excellent research.

Projects are judged by a distinguished panel of experts in four categories:

  • University-led research
  • Practice-led research

Entries will be judged on their contribution to architecture, using the criteria of originality, significance, rigour and communication, the winning entries must be regarded as making an exceptional contribution to architectural knowledge.
