In 2015 we celebrate 50 years of supporting excellent social sciences. The 2015 Impact Prize provided an exciting opportunity to celebrate the outstanding economic and social impacts achieved by ESRC-funded researchers over the last 50 years.

The prize, now in its third year, is an annual opportunity to recognise and reward the successes of ESRC-funded researchers who have achieved, or are currently achieving, outstanding economic or societal impacts. It celebrates outstanding ESRC research and success in collaborative working, partnerships, engagement and knowledge exchange activities that have led to significant impact.

Applications for the 2016 ESRC Celebrating Impact Prize will open in autumn 2015.
