International Development Research @ Cambridge


The ESRC has launched 2018 Celebrating Impact Prize. The Prize is an annual opportunity to recognise and reward the successes of ESRC-funded researchers and other ESRC associates who have achieved, or are currently achieving, outstanding economic or societal impacts.

There are six categories for the Celebrating Impact Prize:

  • Outstanding Impact in Business and Enterprise
  • Outstanding Impact in Public Policy
  • Outstanding Impact in Society
  • Outstanding International Impact
  • Outstanding Early Career Impact
  • Impact Champion.

Applications are welcome from individuals or teams detailing the outstanding impact of their research, knowledge exchange or impact generating activities.

Applications will be assessed through peer review by academics, engagement and knowledge exchange experts and research users. Shortlisted candidates will then be invited to an interview and the winners will be announced at the awards ceremony.

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

Previously unsuccessful applicants or successful applicants may resubmit applications using a new application form and updated information.

The 2018 Celebrating Impact Prize is now open for applications and the application deadline is 16:00 on 23 November 2017.
