The Allianz European Demographer Award honours outstanding research in the field of population studies on demographic change in Europe, achieved by a researcher in the early stage of their career and a researcher at a more advanced stage.

The evaluation committee, composed of highly renowned international experts in population studies, judged the many nominations they received, and selected Fanny Janssen for the experienced researcher award. The junior award was won by Kieron Barclay (Max Planck Institute for Demographic Research, Rostock).
