  • Innovative technologies
  • Biomedical applications
  • Theoretical modeling
  • In vitro studies
  • In vivo studies
  • Human studies

Nominations will be invited annually for early stage researcher (under 35 on January 1st of the year of the nomination). The Award will consist of a prize of € 1200, which will be funded by EBEA directly and through private and company participation (write to for more details). The Award will be officially presented at the BioEM Conference, and the conference fee for the recipient will be waived.

Candidates must be nominated by an EBEA member and need to provide:

  1. A curriculum vitæ with full list of publications;

A committee composed by the EBEA President and by four other prominent scientists will be in charge of the selection. The committee will assign the Award on the basis of:

  1. Pertinence of the topics;
  2. Relevance, innovation and quality of the presented papers;
  3. Scientific standing of the candidate on the bases of the presented CV (e.g. demonstration of independent research capabilities, fellowships, awards, etc).

The EBEA Council will give final approval before the award commitment.

Nominations must be sent to before February 28th, 2015.

Best regards

Eric van Rongen, President
