Göran Skogh Award
Göran Skogh Award for the Most Promising Young Scholar PaperPresented at the EALE 2013 Conference
The foundation Forum för Rättsekonomi (Forum for Law and Economics) has reserved €1000 as an award for the most promising paper presented at the EALE 2013 Conference. The purpose is to encourage outstanding young scholars to remain in Academia. A committee of three distinguished professors, appointed by the Forum för Rättsekonomi in cooperation with the Local Organising Committee of the conference, shall select the “most promising young scholar paper at the conference”. The winner will receive €1000. Other promising work will be given attention. The Prize may be shared.
The Committee’s choice shall be based on the papers presented at the conference. Hence, an accepted paper is a first qualification for participation in the competition. A second qualification is to be “young and productive”. An author holding a Ph.D. degree, who completed her/his academic education no longer than two years back (i.e. her/his Ph.D. oral examination took place not earlier than March 29, 2011) and still, ready to present new research at the conference, is eligible to participate in the competition. The decision of the Committee is final and cannot be appealed.
Authors submitting papers for the EALE 2013 conference who would like to participate in the competition for the most promising young scholar paper shall inform the organizer upon submission.
