The deadline to apply for the annual Dieter W. Jahns Student Practitioner Award is 30 June 2023. The Foundation for Professional Ergonomics (FPE) gives the award 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, worldwide, to students (Honours, M.S. or Ph.D.) in Ergonomics and Ergonomics-related programs. Students who have completed their graduate degrees in the past year are also eligible. In addition to the award, there is a $1,000 USD prize. The award and prize funds will be presented during the Human Factors and Ergonomics Society (HFES) Annual Meeting, 23-27 October 2023, in Washington, DC, USA. Note, the award recipient DOES NOT HAVE TO TRAVEL to Washington to receive the award.
In addition, $1,000.00 USD 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. The student(s), professor, and university will be recognized on the FPE website as recipients of the award, and a summary of the student project will be posted. Dieter W.
