News: ESRC Celebrating Impact Prize 2020: this call is now closed


The Celebrating Impact Prize is the UK's Economic and Social Research Council's annual opportunity to recognise and reward ESRC-funded researchers who’ve created, or enabled, outstanding impact from social science research. ESRC celebrates 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 now open to current and previous ESRC-supported researchers, including doctoral students, and there are five Prize categories:

  • 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 2020 Prize is now closed for applications.
Full details about the Prize and the 2020 competition are available on the ESRC's website at Celebrating Impact Prize.
