Awards at fibe
Two awards are presented at FIBE: The annual Publisher's Award and the biennial Odd Nordhaug's memorial award or Beta Award.
Since 1996, the publisher Cappelen Akademisk Forlag has financed an award for best research contribution at the FIBE conference.
The prize is NOK 20,000 and is awarded during the conference. The award competition is open to researchers who are under 40 years of age on the application deadline date. In the event of multiple authors, all the authors must satisfy the age requirement.
A dedicated award committee, appointed by the NHH's Board, will assess the submitted research work.

THE ODD NORDHAUG MEMORIAL AWARD (BETA AWARD)
This award was established in honour of Odd Nordhaug’s (1953–2013) great contributions to research in general and, in particular, to the dissemination of Scandinavian research.
Odd Nordhaug was a professor at the Department of Strategy and Management at NHH Norwegian School of Economics, and he was the editor of Beta: Scandinavian Journal of Business Research for many years.
The Odd Nordhaug Memorial Award was presented for the first time at FIBE 2015. The award is presented by the Department of Strategy and Management at NHH and was established in cooperation with Beta: Scandinavian Journal of Business Research.
The award also includes a prize of NOK 20,000.
The Odd Nordhaug memorial award is presented every other year and is awarded on the basis of an article characterised by good professional work with a solid basis in scientific method and available research.
To be considered for the award, the article must also be interesting to peers outside the researcher’s own field and be characterised by clear and good dissemination.
