The Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) Celebrating Impact Prize is an 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.
The finalists in all categories will have a film professionally made about their work and impact, and winners are awarded £10,000 to spend on:
- further knowledge exchange
- public engagement
- other impact related activities.
Winners are announced at a high-profile awards ceremony.
