Prize for the best paper on European business history delivered at the European Business History Association's 15th Annual meeting in Athens 24-26 August 2011.

The European Business History Association (EBHA) decided in 2008 that the Association would launch a new prize to be awarded at the EBHA annual meetings. The prize is for the best paper on European business history presented at the meeting and was awarded for the first time in Milan in 2009. The 2010 prize was awarded at the Glasgow meeting in August 2010. The 2011 prize will be awarded at the Athens meeting in August 2011. The winner will be announced and the prize presented at the gala conference dinner on the evening of Friday 26th August 2011.

Eligible are papers, which comply with the following three criteria:
        1. The paper is on European business history
        2. The paper is related to the Conference theme
        3. The paper is delivered electronically on or before 30th July to the email address below.

The term "European business history" is defined broadly, but it is related to the topic of the paper, NOT to the author's nationality or place of residence.

Those who are interested to participate in the competition should send their papers as a Word document or a PDF file by email to by 10th August 2011. Submissions received after this date will not be considered.

The selection committee consists of
Margrit Müller, University of Zurich, Switzerland
Nancy Papalexandris, Athens University of Economic and Business, Greece
Andrea Colli, Bocconi University, Italy
