Martin Reimann Young Investigator Award in Consumer Neuroscience

Award Description

The Martin Reimann Young Investigator Award in Consumer Neuroscience is presented to early-career scholars who have demonstrated significant contributions to the field within 8 years of obtaining their PhD. This award is reserved for scholars whose work, whether in academia or industry, has markedly advanced our understanding of consumer behavior through the lens of neuroscience. The award is bestowed annually at the NeuroPsychoEconomics Conference, following an evaluation by a panel of expert scholars and fellows from the Association.

Award Stipend

The award recognizes groundbreaking research in consumer neuroscience by early-career scholars with a 500 Euro prize.
