The Client/Supplier Collaboration award recognizes a team of clients and vendors that worked together on at least one project and maintains an ongoing relationship centered around using research to solve strategic problems.

The nomination must show a collaboration that excels in areas such as:

  • Demonstrating outstanding teamwork.
  • Producing high-quality, useful data that solves a business need or problem.
  • Taking advantage of individual skill sets to serve group goals.
  • Creatively employing a range of tools and methods.
  • Effectively communicating research findings to critical stakeholders.


Submissions must include a 250-word statement outlining why the individual or team should win the award, using metrics to support the claims, along with a 500-word synopsis of a completed or ongoing research project. Nominations must include one recommendation/testimonial (max. 250 words) from the client that showcases the collaboration. We recommend also submitting supporting materials (case study, additional testimonials, infographic, metrics, etc.) that showcase the team’s communication methods, tools that have been successfully implemented and problems solved.

Self-nominations are accepted.
