In these challenging times, it is more important than ever to remind business, government and society that the research sector is vital both to the economy and for giving a voice to citizens and consumers.

The finalists for the MRS Awards 2020 draw attention to research's ability to drive innovation, inspire change and deliver results and make a clear statement about our existence and the strength with which we will emerge from this crisis.

The winners will be announced via a free online broadcast at 4pm on Monday 7 December. Register here.
