Industry Prize

With a prize of £200, the BSAS Industry Prize is only open to Early Career BSAS Members.  When drafting their submission, applicants are asked to consider the importance of the impact of their research to industry, appreciating that what they as a researcher think is relevant, may not be to the end-user, i.e, the producer.  This includes thinking about aspects, such as return on investment or feasibility of introducing new concepts that have been derived from the research. The candidates will then be judged by their summary and presentation at the Society’s first ever hybrid conference on the 12th – 14th April 2022, by representatives of the BSAS Stakeholder Association, with the main criteria for winning - ‘impact to industry’.

The judging panel will then choose five finalists to go through to the second stage, which involves an additional presentation of their work during the conference’s Industry Prize session.
