The ESRC Celebrating Impact Prize is an annual opportunity to recognise and reward the successes of ESRC-affiliated researchers and other ESRC associates who have achieved, or are currently achieving, outstanding economic or societal impacts.

  • 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
  • Impact Champion prize will recognise an individual academic (either self-nominated or by a third party) who has a significant track record in supporting and enabling others to achieve impact.

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.

A prize of £10,000 is awarded to the winners of each Outstanding category and the Impact Champion.
