BUP Annual Award for the Best PhD Thesis in 2014

The BUP PhD Award Winners in 2014 for best Thesis 2013.A few late applications for this year's PhD award competition have arrived last week. Due to the lower response rate than last year, it was decided at the recent BUP board meeting to extend the deadline to Monday, 15 June.

The Baltic University Programme (BUP) award for the best PhD thesis supports high quality research promoting sustainable development.

The BUP award is a distinction given to the author of what is judged to be the best PhD work defended at any of the universities belonging to the Baltic University Programme during the previous calendar year. The quality of each submitted thesis will be assessed partly based on its quality within the context of the author’s own specific field, and also with emphasis on the author’s success in placing their research results clearly into a multi-disciplinary sustainable development context.

The BUP award will be given in the form of diploma, a statuette and a sum of 500 Euro.

For further information please see the BUP PhD Award flyer. Deadline for submissions is: 15st June 2015.
