About the Award

In 1999, the Centre for Social Studies of the University of Coimbra established a biennial award for young researchers (up to the age of 35) from Portuguese-speaking countries. CES Award is designed to distinguish high-quality work in the field of the Social Sciences and the Humanities. One of its main goals is to acknowledge studies that, for their outstanding merit, contribute to the development of the Portuguese-speaking scientific communities. The field of Social Sciences is here broadly understood.

With a prize money of 5.000,00 Euros, the 11th CES Award edition is funded by the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation.
