In 2015 we celebrated 50 years of supporting excellent social science. The 2016 Impact Prize builds upon this milestone by championing the continued and future contributions of our researchers though promoting the outstanding economic and social impacts achieved by ESRC-funded researchers.

The prize, now in its fourth year, is an annual opportunity to recognise and reward ESRC-funded researchers. It celebrates outstanding ESRC research and success in interdisciplinary, collaborative working, partnerships, engagement and knowledge exchange activities that have led to significant impact.

Applications for the 2016 Celebrating Impact Prize are now closed.

This year's winners will be announced at a prize ceremony on 22 June.
