NES Student Prize
The goal of the NES Student Prize is to pay attention to professional and good projects in ergonomics.
Every national society appoints a candidate to contest for the Nordic Ergonomics Society's student price (NES student price). Candidate projects must meet the requirements listed in the criteria for the award. A session (workshop) at the annual NES Conference will consist of the winning entries from the Nordic countries, where every representative makes a 20 minute presentation of their project. The NES Student Prize committee, consisting of one representative from each country, will assess the projects, the documentation on them, and the presentations. Based on this a winner will be chosen.
The prize consists of:
- free participation in the annual conference the following year
- a certificate and flowers
- a one-year membership in the national society of the winner
- a mention in the press release published in connection with the Annual Conference
The price is announced and awarded at the end of the conference.
