Every year, the community of experts in data analysis, insights, and analytics showcases some of the most fascinating and thought-provoking projects from around the world. These projects are presented through inspiring papers and captivating presentations covering various themes. To acknowledge outstanding contributions to the community, we present a series of awards, including the highly-coveted ESOMAR Congress Best Paper Award.

Prior to the start of the Congress, the Programme Committee nominates their top three papers for this award. From there, the committee collectively chooses the winner based solely on the written paper, before they have even presented their work.
