In 2005 FIR Award was launched to foster academic research on subjects in Finance and Sustainability. By building bridges between the academic and finance communities and their stakeholders, the FIR Award promotes practically relevant academic research and encourages broader disciplinary development of responsible investment scholarship.
Each year, a call for submissions is launched in January and April in five categories: Best Master’s Thesis award, Best PhD Thesis award, Best Published Academic Article award, Best Pedagogical Initiative.
Submissions may be accepted in French or English for the four awards valued at €5,000.00 each. One research grant (Only PhD) valued at €10,000.00 will also be rewarded.
The Jury, composed of academics and professionals, meets twice, once to make a pre-selection and once to determine the winners.
The results are traditionally announced during Responsible Finance Week, which takes place each fall, at a ceremony to which the winners are invited and at which they have the opportunity to present their work.
Application deadline: April 17th, 2022
