  • Open to previous and current ESRC-supported researchers, including doctoral students
  • Previous winners may submit new research impacts
  • Nominations for Impact Champion can be through self nomination or by a third party
  • Individuals and organisations that are carrying out strategic commissioned work for ESRC may apply for Impact Champion (nominated by a third party or by self-nominating)

We particularly welcome interdisciplinary projects, those involving the use of research resources or infrastructure, ESRC supported survey investments, and impacts arising from research relating to business and enterprise.
