The latter may be in the realms of higher education teaching, changing government policy, communication of science to the general public or implementation of interventions.

Bruce will deliver an Award Winner’s lecture at the annual BPS Developmental Section Conference in 2016, where a certificate and £600 will be awarded. Bruce was awarded the BPS Public Engagement and Media Award in 2013 when he was made a life fellow.
