REECAP AWARD for young researchers

Starting at the Warsaw meeting, REECAP will award a Prize to the best contribution by an early career researcher. Eligible contributions should have, as a lead author, a researcher who has not yet earned his or her PhD or who has completed it in 2021 or later. The selection process will be done by the members of the Scientific Committee of the REECAP Workshop and a representative of the REECAP board who will act as Chair of the Award Committee. The contributions will be assessed based on presentation during the conference (full paper submission is not required). The assessment will account for three criteria: scientific merit, policy relevance, and clarity and structure of the presentation. The winner will be announced at the closing ceremony of the workshop and the decision disseminated via the REECAP Blog and newsletter.

The award will consist of a certificate and an invitation to present the paper at a REECAP Webinar. After the webinar, the winner can consult the full manuscript with two selected members of the REECAP board, and receive free feedback on the full papers before its submission to a journal.
