The Economic and Social Research Council invites applications for its celebrating impact prize. This recognises and rewards ESRC-funded researchers and ESRC associates who have achieved, or are currently achieving, economic or social impacts through their social science research. There are five categories for the prize:

  • outstanding business and enterprise impact;
  • outstanding public policy impact;
  • outstanding societal impact;
  • outstanding international impact;
  • outstanding early career impact.

Eligible candidates include individuals, teams and other joint collaborations who are current or previous ESRC-funded researchers or fellows. Applicants for the early-career prize must be current ESRC-funded doctoral students or individuals who completed their ESRC doctoral studentship. Each applicant may enter one application by category and up to three applications in total.

Prizes are worth £10,000 each for the winners of each category. Prizes are expected to be used within one year towards further knowledge exchange, public engagement or other communications activities to promote economic and social impacts of research.
