ISQOLS RUUT VEENHOVEN AWARD
Ruut Veenhoven Award 2023-2024
The award was created in 2014 in honor 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 $500 plus a certificate of appreciation and 1-year ISQOLS membership. 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 five to eight years).
The Ruut Veenhoven Award is an initiative of the Erasmus Happiness Economics Research Organization and restarting for the years 2023-2024, the prize will be presented at the Ruut Veenhoven Lecture at ISQOLS during the virtual conference in Winter 2024.
