The award is presented by UniPID in cooperation with the Finnish Society for Development Research (FSDR) and the prize sum for the winning thesis is 1000 euros! Two highly accomplished theses are also awarded yearly. The aim of the award is to promote the interdisciplinary research conducted in the different UniPID Member Universities relating to development.
