The Centre on Constitutional Change, which is based at the University of Edinburgh, has been nominated for an ESRC Celebrating Impact Prize.
The Celebrating Impact Prize is awarded annually by the ESRC (Economic and Social Research Council). It recognises and rewards researchers whose work has made a real difference to society or the economy.
The Centre on Constitutional Change conducts real-time research on constitutional issues. Established in August 2013, its first year was spent examining the implications of Scottish independence.
The Centre has been nominated in the ‘Outstanding Impact in Public Policy’ category, alongside Royal Holloway University, the University of Essex and the University of Nottingham.
