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.
