ESRC Celebrating Impact Prize 2016 submissions now open

ESRC (Economic and Social Research Council) has launched its fourth annual Celebrating Impact Prize. The Impact Prize celebrates the contribution of ESRC-funded research to society and the economy.

There is a cash prize of £10,000 for winners of each category.

There are six prize categories and the competition closes on 29 January 2016:

1. Outstanding Impact in Business

2. Outstanding Impact in Public Policy

3. Outstanding Impact in Society

4. Outstanding International Impact

5. Outstanding Early Career Impact

6. Impact Champion

Changes to the application process this year mean that all researchers who have not previously won a prize are able to re-submit previously unsuccessful applications with updates, and previous winners are able to submit new research for consideration.

Further details about the prize, categories, entry forms and guidelines, together with case studies and videos of previous winners to help inspire entries can be found on the ESRC website

For queries about the prize or eligibility contact Ed Vollans (0179 341 4697), Impact Prize Officer.
