On January 10, LouRIM held the fifth edition of its yearly internal event, the LouRIM Award. The “LouRIM Research Excellence Award” recognizes the scientific merits of an Institute member for his/her outstanding contribution published in a scientific journal during the year.
This year is the year of change. In order to encourage the submission of more types of publications, four evaluation criteria, considered as key indicators of research excellence at LouRIM, have been used to assess the publications:
- Quality of the contribution
- Multi or inter-disciplinarity.
- Originality and innovation
- Outreach and impact
Following these criteria, four prizes have been awarded.
1. LouRIM Research Excellence Award: Fanny CAMBIER and Nicolas KERVYN for their paper ManyLabs 2: Investigating Variation in Replicability Across Samples and Settings 1
Awarded for its highly methodological and rigorous contribution, its highlight of the importance of replications in order for the science to progress and its highlight of the importance of international collaboration in research.
2. Innovation Award: Karine CHARRY for her paper Children's response to “ecofriendly” labelling: The role of self-concept clarity2.
Awarded for its originality and its methodology, and its link with important questions in a context in which youth-lead movements express an aspiration for change.
3. Outreach Award: Julie HERMANS for her paper The added value of implicit motives for management research3.
Awarded for its potential outreach due to the easy and ready to use character of Brief Implicit Association Test.
4. Multidisciplinarity Award: Amélie WUILLAUME and Frank JANSSEN for their paper Researching bricolage in social entrepreneurship4.
Awarded for its connection of different distant notions one to each other.
Congratulations to the award-winners!
