IATBR Awards and Prizes
The International Association for Travel Behaviour Research (IATBR) is committed to promoting excellence in the profession and rewarding exceptional contributions to the field. The Association has two awards, one that recognizes an outstanding new entrant into the field and another that recognizes a lifetime of contributions to the profession through research, education, and service. The awards are as follows:
Eric Pas Dissertation Prize
The Eric Pas Dissertation Prize is awarded annually to the individual who is judged as submitting the dissertation that makes the greatest impact among all dissertations nominated for the prize in any given year. Award of the prize signals the arrival of exceptional new talent in the field. The award is named in honor of Eric I Pas, a leading travel behaviour researcher, who passed away in November 1997. In addition to the Prize, the Association often awards Honorable Mentions in recognition of the very high quality submissions received every year.
Lifetime Achievement Award
The Lifetime Achievement Award is awarded once every three years in conjunction with the IATBR conference. Nominations are solicited for the award and a jury selects an individual that it believes has made a lifetime of exceptional contributions to the field in research, education, and service.
