Panmure House Prize 2024


Panure House, FCLTGLOBAL, Baillie Gifford


The Panmure House Prize is an annual award of US$75,000 for research that explores the relationship between long-term thinking and radical innovation. The Prize is awarded to emerging leaders in academia and enables research that embodies Adam Smith's own approach to rigorous empiricism and long-term, interdisciplinary thinking. Prize winners utilize the award to conduct research from their home institution, working to publicize and publish their findings widely within peer-reviewed journals, national and international press, as well as curating first-look updates and interactive sessions on the Panmure House website.

The Prize is open to academics in and across all disciplines whose nominations are shortlisted and judged by our specially appointed Panmure House Prize Panel. The Prize is administrated in partnership with FCLTGLOBAL and supported by Baillie Gifford.



  • Submissions should explore topics related to the practical implementation of long-term thinking in relation to innovation, finance, and social and economic change.
  • Submissions are welcome from academics from any discipline, at any stage based on research already conducted.
  • Applications are encouraged from early career-researchers. We define this as those who are between 3-15 years post completion of PhD.
