Transatlantic Alliance Award
The European Society of Endocrinology and the Endocrine Society are delighted to announce a joint new initiative, The Transatlantic Alliance Award.
The Transatlantic Alliance Award will be presented to a recognised international leader who has made significant advancements in endocrinology research through work and collaboration in both the US and Europe. It is open to researchers across the basic and clinical spectra.
The Award consists of a medal and a financial reward which will normally either be presented at the European Congress of Endocrinology (ECE) or the Endocrine Society annual meeting (ENDO), where the awardee will present one of the main lectures. The Award lecture at the respective meeting will take place on alternate years. However, both Societies may invite the winner to speak at its annual meeting.
The financial reward is €5000 and will be presented at ECE 2022 (21-24 May 2022, Milan, Italy).
Closing date is 28 May 2021.
Nominations can be made by individuals or any scientific organisation or administrative group. Self-nominations will be allowed if supported by two members of either ESE or ES. Nominees should be a member of at least one of the Societies.
