The European Court of Auditors (ECA) launches 2020 ECA Award for Research on Public Sector Auditing. The ECA Award is addressed to European academics and researchers for peer-reviewed academic publications (articles, papers), books and theses on theoretical or empirical studies related to public sector auditing, in particular within a European Union context.
With the 2020 ECA Award focussed on the theme of ‘EU added value’, the ECA intends to provide an incentive and recognition for research on public audit-related issues and reaffirm that a more systematic analysis of the actual and potential EU added value should be fostered both in the Member States and at EU level.
The Award is open to:
researchers and scholars, for a publication (article, paper, in a peer-reviewed academic journal or book) which must have been published on or after 1 January 2016, and
postgraduates who have written a Master’s thesis or a PhD thesis. The viva examination must have taken place on or after 1 January 2016.
To be eligible to apply for this ECA Award, candidates must be nationals of an EU Member State or have completed their thesis at a university in an EU Member State. The Master’s or PhD thesis must not have been submitted for any previous edition of the ECA Award.
Current or former Members or staff of the ECA, or any other EU institution or body, are not eligible for this award.
The deadline for applications is 30 June 2020.
