The EMPA consortium annually awards the Frank Delmartino Thesis Prize. The prize is awarded to the best thesis written by a student who went on an EMPA exchange. The winner of the Frank Delmartino Thesis Prize receives a sum of 500 euros and is invited to attend the upcoming EMPA meeting to present the results of his/her thesis research.
Ms. Lea Milena Franke has won the Frank Delmartino Thesis Prize 2018 with her quantitative and comparative research on public officials’ trust in citizens and interorganisational trust in the public sector in Sweden and France. Ms. Franke went on exchange from KU Leuven to Sciences Po Paris.
