Early Career Award

The ESRA Early Career Award recognises the best paper presented by an early career researcher at the biannial conference.

Nomination process: The competition is open to researchers within two years of the completion of their doctorate or within five years of starting their career in survey research. Papers are welcome in any field related to survey research and are full papers (max. 9,000 words) of abstracts accepted for presentation at the ESRA conference. The papers will be judged by a review committee (members of the ESRA Committee and an external member) based on the quality of research design, originality, significance, organization, and presentation. The authors of the winning paper are announced at the conference dinner and the first author receives a cash award of €500.
