In its fourth year the 'ESAI Postgraduate Researcher of the Year Award' for ESAI members is now open for applications. Applications will be accepted from students doing either a PhD or a Masters degree by research in an environmental topic.
Each application will be evaluated under three criteria:
- Scientific excellence and originality
- Impact (economic/environmental/societal)
- Dissemination (conferences, outreach, media)
Candidates will be asked to outline research objectives, background to research, why research is necessary and novel, environmental relevance, methods, results, accomplishments, awards, publications/patents, the potential impact of the research (economic/environmental/societal), and outline the dissemination activities related to the project.
