To make the societal impact of its research more visible, the HSG has established the "Impact Award". This award honors research with a clearly identifiable impact in practice. The HSG awards up to three projects annually, one of which may have a specific regional impact. The projects may stem from all fields of research.The award consists of two elements: First, CHF 5'000 each will be granted to the winning teams. Second, each award will be introduced by a movie trailer of approximately three minutes, sponsored by the HSG. The award ceremony will be held at the University's "Dies Academicus".
Applications by self-nomination are welcome from all HSG researchers (including PhD students) that have at least a 50%-position at the University. The impact must have been achieved within the last two years before the submission date.
