The Vosges Chamber of Commerce and Industry is organising the 3rd Mountain Thesard Prize, which will award 5000 € to a PhD Thesis dealing with mountain topics. This competition is open to all students who have published a PhD thesis in a European or Maghrebi university after 2009.


Vosges Chamber of Commerce and Industry will organise the 3rd Mountain Thésard Prize in 2013.


The aim of the competition is to encourage and promote research work that can lead to proposals, solutions or issues for consideration for the political and economic actors of European highland areas, in response to the specific problems faced by populations living in highland areas.

The winner of the Thésard Prize will be chosen by the members of the Scientific Mountain Committee, which we facilitate and which brings together 15 European university researchers who are highland-area specialists in their respective disciplines.

The prize winner will receive a cheque for € 5 000 on the occasion of the 5th European Biennial Event for Highland Regions, to be held on 17 and 18 October 2013 in La Bresse (Vosges, France), on the theme of “The Attractiveness of Mountain Territories”.

In order to be considered for the Thésard Prize, the work that is presented to us must come within the area of human, economic, and social sciences, and / or it must have an environmental dimension. The work may be done by French or European research teams, and it may be drafted in any of the languages of the European Union.


Only theses defended from 2009 onwards may be included for participation.

Pre-selection shall be done by the members of the Scientific Committee. To that end, candidates must send us a summary of their thesis,to a maximum of 10-15 pages, drafted in their language of origin, by post or by e-mail, to the following address:
