The Office for National Statistics (ONS) Research Excellence Awards applications are open for 2022.
These Awards provide an opportunity to recognise the excellent and innovative analyses carried out using ONS owned or managed data and promote best practice research methodologies and data matching or linking. They help promote greater awareness and understanding of the data made available and the public good achieved from statistical research.
For the past five years, an expert judging panel has evaluated many diverse and innovative research projects. Everything from life changing cancer research, new insights into crime prevention, through to invaluable analysis on the coronavirus pandemic.
This year ONS have assembled another group of expert judges to sift through exciting new entries. Your research project – or even a colleague’s project – could be one of them.
This year, there are five award categories:
- ONS Research Excellence Award
- ONS Cross-government Analysis Award
- ONS Linked Administrative Data Award
- ONS Early Career Research Award
- ONS People's Choice Award.
Winners will be celebrated by ONS and the research community at the ONS Research Capability Conference in London on Tuesday 11 October, presented by National Statistician, Professor Sir Ian Diamond.
The ONS will further showcase the winners’ award-winning research through the Research Excellence Series and our newsletters.
For further information about the awards and how to apply, go to ONS Research Excellence Awards.
Nominations close at midnight on Friday 29 July.
