By 11th February 2020 No Comments

ESRC is pleased to announce that the Celebrating Impact Prize 2020 is now open for applications.

The Celebrating Impact Prize is ESRC’s annual opportunity to recognise and reward ESRC-supported researchers who have created or enabled outstanding impact. We celebrate social science researchers at all career stages whose actions have supported changes in practice, thinking or capacity that create a positive impact in our society, economy and in our lives, in the UK and internationally. The Prize is open to current and previous ESRC-supported researchers, including doctoral students, and there are five competition categories this year:

  • Outstanding Business and Enterprise Impact
  • Outstanding Public Policy Impact
  • Outstanding Societal Impact
  • Outstanding International Impact
  • Outstanding Early Career Impact

All finalists have a film professionally made about their work and its impact, and winners are awarded £10,000 to spend on further knowledge exchange, public engagement or other impact related activities. The Prize winners are announced and presented with their awards at a ceremony held at The Royal Society in London.

Full details about the Prize and how to apply to this year’s competition are available on the ESRC website, here: Celebrating Impact Prize 2020. The closing date for applications is 4pm on Thursday 19 March 2020.
