Danny Van Den Bulcke Best Paper Prize

The Danny Van Den Bulcke Best Paper Prize was established by the EIBA Fellows with the support of the EIBA Board, and was awarded for the first time at the 40th EIBA Annual Conference in Uppsala, Sweden (December 2014).

The winners each receive a certificate, and the award-winning paper is granted a money prize of €1,000. The inaugural DVDB Prize was sponsored by the EIBA Fellows. An esteemed selection committee reviews the papers and selects the winner(s) from amongst the finalists each year (announced at the award ceremony).
