Research Prize

The SPR Research Prize is now in it's fourth year and we once again invite our members to submit applied research by industry practitioners.  This is a fantastic opportunity to showcase papers that present new data, innovative analysis, or demonstrate new ways of thinking from researchers in their day-to-day jobs.  
The Society is looking for your support to ensure that high quality research is recognised.  Readers, colleagues and authors are all welcome to submit research (if you have a copy of it) or refer to research that you are aware of, which you believe offers great insight and is of high quality.  Please note that academic research cannot be considered, however both academic and industry research pieces are welcomed to be submitted to the Nick Tyrrell prize.
