The awards—for NERC-funded researchers whose work has had substantial impact on the economy and society—will be given in four categories: economic, societal, international and early career impact. Winners in each category will receive £10,000 and runners-up will win £5,000.
Applications can come from individuals or teams nominating themselves or other people and nominations are open from 25 June to 10 September.
The awards were created to mark NERC’s 50th anniversary.
