Poster Awards, worth €250 each, are awarded to the eight best posters (four clinical and four basic) on display at the annual European Congress of Endocrinology (ECE).
There is no application process. The top twenty clinical and top twenty basic posters are reviewed by members of the ECE Programme Organising Committee during the congress.
- The applicant will be the presenting author of the poster during ECE.
- The applicant must be a current member of ESE and be within 10 years post-PhD or MD.
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 prizes are bestowed by the Programme Organising Committee to the presenting author of the eight selected posters.
The winners will be announced, and will receive their prize money, at the Poster Prize session during the congress.
