Each year, the HSL Faculty confers three honorary awards—the Research Award, the Teaching Award, and the Research Dissemination Award. The Faculty Management considers it important to highlight this activity—internally, to employees and students; and externally, to other professionals and the public at large.
All academic staff members have the opportunity to nominate a candidate. Students are encouraged to nominate candidates for the Teaching Award through their organization. The nominations must be accompanied by a brief justification and must be submitted to the respective Head of Department/Centre Director, who will pass it on to the Faculty Management.
The nomination deadline is 29 November 2013.
More information about the criteria for the different awards can be found here (in Norwegian).
