European Demographer Award

Deadline: 12 January 2020

Demographic change is one of the major challenges European societies will face in upcoming decades. In order to support outstanding research on the causes and consequences of population developments, Population Europe, the network of Europe’s foremost demographic research institutes, in collaboration with the Stifterverband für die Deutsche Wissenschaft and the Berlin Demography Forum, invites nominations for the European Demographer Award

The prize will honor outstanding research in the field of population studies on demographic change in Europe. The research should be at the frontier of anthropological, biological, economic, historical, mathematical, political, sociological or statistical population studies, achieved by researchers in the early stage of their careers or those at a more advanced stage. 

The applications will be evaluated by a committee, composed of eminent demographers and chaired by Prof. Jane C. Falkingham, ESRC Centre for Population Change, University of Southampton. The successful candidates will be invited to the awards ceremony, which will be held on occasion of the evening event of the Berlin Demography Forum on 23 March 2020, with eminent decision-makers and representatives from research, the economy, and political and societal organizations in attendance.
