Since 1995, Elsevier has hosted Early Career Researcher Awards with partner organisations around the world.
The Early Career Researcher Awards recognise and reward outstanding young research talent making a significant contribution to their field of research and thus having a positive effect on society. Elsevier believes in the vital importance of supporting researchers at an early stage in their career and wants to recognise the institutions that foster them.
The Early Career Researcher UK Awards comprises two separate awards programmes:
- Scopus Young Researcher UK Awards
- Researchers’ Choice Communication Award (new in 2015)
The Award Ceremony took place on the 5th of November, 2015, at the Royal Society in London. Senior Government and Academic Advisers, Funding Council Management, University executives, policy makers, senior researchers, Fulbright alumni and Elsevier senior management were present at the ceremony recognising the outstanding achievements of the UK’s early career researchers.
