Are you (or do you know) a social scientist achieving excellent economic or societal impact? The Excellence in Impact Awards are open to social scientists of all career stages and their professional colleagues at Universities within the ESRC IAA O²RB Partnership (University of Oxford, Oxford Brookes, Reading, and Open Universities). 

The Awards include 4 Excellence in Impact Prizes (£2,500 each), 1 Early Career Impact Champion Prize (£2,500), and an overall Impact Champion Prize (additional £2,500)

This funding is designed to be flexible to your needs. You can apply for a maximum budget of £2,500 for a single forum event, a series of dialogues (or a combination of both), or the funding could enable researchers to start smaller scale conversations with key external stakeholders to enable a larger event.

We encourage applications for collaborations with our O2RB regional partners: Oxford Brookes, Reading, and Open Universities. Applications are made online via IRAMS. Please liase with the Law Faculty Research Support Team as soon as possible ahead of starting work on your application.
