Best student paper award

The award is given annually to a student who is enrolled in a Ph.D. program at a university in one of the five Nordic countries or in Estonia, or a young researcher who works with a research institute in one of these countries. The Ph.D. student should still be enrolled when the paper is submitted, while a young researcher should have obtained his or her Master's degree (or equivalent) less than 5 years before this date. The student or young researcher has to be a single or first author of the paper in question.

Award criteria:
An award committee will select the paper that makes the greatest contribution to health economics. The paper's contribution may be theoretical, empirical, methodological, or a combination of these. The recipient of the reward should attend the annual meeting and will be invited to give a 10 minutes presentation at the general session.
