Jane Beattie Award
History of the Award
In 2006, EADM created the Jane Beattie Scientific Recognition Award to honour the memory of our late colleague, Jane Beattie.
The award will be made every two years and is intended for researchers who have recently completed the first stages of their careers – defined operationally by those who are 5 to 10 years post-PhD (see below).
The award is bestowed in recognition of “innovation in decision research”, as broadly understood within the SPUDM tradition. In practical terms, this means that candidates should submit to the committee (a) a statement of 1,000 words or less that makes the case for their innovation; (b) one paper in which the innovation is presented for a scientific audience; and (c) a copy of their curriculum vitae. Candidates should also provide a statement as to when, and from where they received their PhDs.
To be eligible for this award, candidates must have completed their PhDs no sooner than 5 years before the end of the most recent SPUDM meeting and no more than 10 years before the same date.
Winners will receive a prize of 1,000 euros, a certificate, and be asked to make a presentation of their research at SPUDM.
The paper will be evaluated by a committee appointed by the Board of EADM. The 2017 committee is comprised of Barbara Summers (chair), Timothy J. Pleskac (the 2015 winner) and two others to be confirmed.
To be considered for this award, papers and statements should be submitted before 31st March 2017, to Barbara Summers (email@example.com)
