Bengt Turner Award

The aims of the Bengt Turner Award are to encourage new researchers to write research papers on housing and urban issues linked to the topics of the European Network for Housing Research (ENHR) Working Groups, to increase awareness of ENHR, and to keep alive the memory of Bengt Turner .

As researchers working on or just having finished their PhD are the focus of the Bengt Turner Award, the winning paper would not have to be publishable as a journal article, but it would demonstrate a clear potential to form the basis of a journal article.

As of 2015, the Bengt Turner Award is awarded to the best conference paper of the annual ENHR conference.
A 1st and 2nd runner up are also nominated.

Winner: Arthur Acolin
