I would like to draw your attention to the announcement of the Ruut Veenhoven Prize 2015, granted by the Erasmus Happiness Economics Research Organisation. The prize was created in 2014 and will from 2015 be awarded annually in honour of Emeritus Professor Ruut Veenhoven (1942), a prominent researcher and one of the founders of the field of Happiness Studies. The prize carries an award of the equivalent of 2,500 Euro plus a certificate of appreciation. It is intended to award outstanding research in the field of Happiness Studies by a promising researcher; a researcher who has performed exceptional research and is just embarking on a research career (having obtained a doctorate within the last six years).
The Erasmus Happiness Economics Research Organisation (EHERO) invites the submission of research work written in English. The prize will be presented at the Ruut Veenhoven Seminar in Happiness Studies to be held in Rotterdam on November 24. The winner will be selected by a committee headed by Emeritus Professor Justus Veenman, Erasmus University Rotterdam, the Netherlands.
Deadline for submission is September 18, 2015. More information about the procedure can be found at http://www.eur.nl/english/ehero/veenhovenprize2015/
Please forward this information to anybody who might be interested.
