Announcement: UK Evaluation Society – Ipsos EVALUATION PRIZE WINNERS

At the UK Evaluation Society Conference in May 2022, two prizes funded by Ipsos UK were launched to celebrate the accomplishments of the evaluation profession – an Early Career Evaluator Prize and Innovation in Methodologies Prize.

A panel comprising Ipsos staff and members of UK Evaluation Society Council assessed the applications and we are delighted to announce the winners :

  • Early Career Evaluator Prize Winner
    Johannes Read from City-REDI at the University of Birmingham
    for the work he has undertaken to help embed evaluation practice and an understanding of its value within the Higher Education sector.
  • Innovation in Methodologies Prize Winner
    Julian King, Esther Namukasa and Alex Hurrell for the Theory of Value creation work undertaken by OPM, which seeks to incorporate value creation into a theory of change.

More details about the prize winners will be published in the forthcoming issue of The Evaluator, so watch this space.

We’d also like to say a massive thank you to all our applicants – we received strong and diverse applications for both prizes and were excited to hear about all the great work that is being undertaken by the relevant individuals and professionals.
