Celebrating impact and championing social sciences
Now in its fourth year, the Celebrating Impact Prize is an annual opportunity to recognise and reward the successes of ESRC-funded researchers who have achieved outstanding economic and societal impacts.
The prize showcases outstanding research and successes in collaborative working, engagement and knowledge exchange that have led to significant impact. The winners of the six prize categories each receive £10,000, to be spent on furthering knowledge exchange or public engagement and to maximise the economic and societal impact of their research.
Applications are particularly welcome from interdisciplinary projects, research involving the use of big data resources or infrastructure, and impacts from institutions submitting for the first time.
Previous years’ winners have demonstrated the value of social science research in tackling the biggest challenges society faces. Videos of their work can be seen at www.esrc.ac.uk/impactprize
