In 2005 FIR Award was launched to foster academic research on subjects in Finance and Sustainability. By building bridges between the academic and finance communities and their stakeholders, the FIR Award promotes practically relevant academic research and encourages broader disciplinary development of responsible investment scholarship. The long-term goal of the FIR award is to build a network of researchers in this field.
In 2011, the FIR Award created a partnership with the PRI to advance a joint programme to meet these goals. Aspects of this partnership are the development of an international resource database and coordination between the annual PRI Academic Conference and FIR Award Presentation.
