ESRC Celebrating Impact Prize 2020

This is a reminder that the deadline for applications to the ESRC Celebrating Impact Prize 2020 is fast approaching.

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 our website, here: Celebrating Impact Prize 2020. The closing date for applications is 4pm on Thursday 19 March 2020.
