EAPS Award for Population Studies
This Award honors groundbreaking original contributions to the study of population with far reaching implications for our discipline and our understanding of population dynamics and their consequences. Unique innovative insights such as expressed in a single or several publications, as well as work which spans a longer period can be nominated for the EAPS Award for Population Studies, as can exceptional life time achievements.
Nominations for the EAPS Award can be made at any time throughout the year. The one strict deadline is that nominations should be made at least two months before an upcoming European Population Conference. Because the next European Population Conference, EPC 2020, had to be cancelled due to the corona pandemic, the deadline for this Award has been extended to 1 July 2020!
