GAIA Masters Student Paper Award

GAIA supports the promotion of young researchers by awarding the GAIA Masters Student Paper Award.

Every year, Masters students are encouraged to submit their results from research-based courses or Masters theses in the field of transdisciplinary environmental and sustainability science. One article will be selected by a jury. The award is meant to honor research which holds relevance for important societal transformations and/or which has discovered new paths of inter- and transdisciplinary environmental or sustainability research. The winner will be granted a price money of 1'500,- EUR, endowed by the Selbach Environmental Foundation and Dialogik gGmbH and a free one-year subscription to GAIA, including free online access.

The winner may also be encouraged to submit his/her paper for publication in GAIA. The GAIA Masters Student Paper Award will be presented on the occasion of the GAIA Annual Meeting, held every spring at different locations.
