Young Investigator Awards
Twelve Young Investigator Awards, worth €1500 each, are awarded to researchers who submit abstracts (basic or clinical) to the annual European Congress of Endocrinology.
Applicants must indicate on the abstract form whether they wish to be considered for an ESE Young Investigator Award.
Successful applicants must be within 10 years post-PhD or MD and a member of ESE at the time of the meeting.
The eight awarded posters, 4 clinical and 4 basic, are selected from the top 20 clinical and 20 basic poster abstracts which attained the best ratings during the abstract evaluation process, based on the scientific content and on the quality of the poster presentation. The awards are bestowed by the Programme Organising Committee to the presenting author of the eight selected posters. The winners will be announced and receive their award during the congress.
