Selection Process

The winner of the award will be determined in two steps. First, a review committee will evaluate the submission material and identify a short list of three candidates. Second, these three candidates will be invited to give a presentation of their work in an online session with the review jury. The jury will then select the winner. The selection process will be directed by the following criteria:
- Originality and depth of contribution,
- Methodological soundness,
- Form and quality of presentation, and
- Significance for the research field.
