Celebrating our researchers

Research Impact Awards - winners

Celebrating Excellence in Research and Impact Awards

Our annual awards showcase the very best examples of how Essex research is having a positive impact on people’s everyday lives.

Our researchers are constantly asking difficult questions and providing answers to improve the lives of individuals and communities.

We look at issues that affect us now and in the future – and our research helps to shape thinking and influence policy in this country and across the globe.

The awards are open to all academics, researchers and doctoral students and signal the University’s commitment to world-class research that makes a difference.
