Application for Ole-Jørgen Skog Award

The Kettil Bruun Society is an international and multidisciplinary society, aiming to promote social and epidemiological research which fosters comparative understanding of the social aspects of alcohol problems in different countries and across different sub-populations.

The purpose of the Ole-Jørgen Skog Award for Early Career Scientist is to recognize the excellence of the papers presented by early career scientists at the KBS Annual Symposium held each year in early June. The award is a cash prize of 250 Euros and two years' membership of the Kettil Bruun Society.

The best paper presented by an early career scientist (no more than five years in alcohol research) will be selected by a scientific committee, based on its contribution to advancing knowledge in alcohol research and on its theoretical and methodological quality.

The winner will be announced and the award presented at the symposium dinner on Thursday night.
