Every year the Legatum Institute runs a policy ideas competition for young researchers. The competition may be of interest to students, both undergraduate and postgraduate, and researchers in your department.
This year the Institute is asking the question: ‘How can we ensure that ageing societies are more prosperous societies?’
The competition, held this year in partnership with AIG, provides entrants with an opportunity to meet other scholars, engage with the Institute and also present their essays to a number of academics and policy makers.
This year judging the competition we have Martyn Lewis CBE, broadcaster, journalist and Chairman of the National Council for Voluntary Organisations (NCVO), Julia Manning, founder and Chief Executive of 2020health, Rudi Westendorp, Professor of Old-Age Medicine at the University of Copenhagen, and Adam Winslow, Chief Executive Officer of AIG Life.
Shortlisted entrants will have their work published, get to present their ideas in front of our expert judges, and there are cash prizes for the winning three essays/presentations:
· The AIG Legatum Prize: £3,000.
· 2nd Prize: £1,500.
· 3rd Prize: £500.
There is also a poster which could be circulated, which can be found here: https://lif.blob.core.windows.net/lif/docs/default-source/default-library/css_2015_postera4_final.pdf?sfvrsn=4
