News: Student award for ergonomics

Due to the current world crisis and changes at universities, the deadline to apply for the Dieter W Jahns Student Practitioner Award has been extended to 30 June 2020. This annual Foundation for Professional Ergonomics award is given to the student (or group of students) for an ergonomics project that demonstrates the major practice areas of ergonomics: analysis, design, and integration. The award is open to MSc or PhD students worldwide on ergonomics and ergonomics-related programmes. Students who have completed their graduate degrees in the past year are also eligible. The award includes a US$1000 prize.

In addition, US$1000 will be awarded to the professor who served as the mentor for the student project.  The cash award is made to the university department or lab for the professor’s discretionary use to advance education in the practice of ergonomics and human factors.
