Plenary awards

Students who are selected to present their research during the plenary sessions, have a chance of winning one of the three plenary awards. The first prize consists of €1250,-, the second prize of €750,-, and the third prize of €250,-. You can spend this money on visiting biomedical congresses of your choice. All of these winners will also receive a one-year online subscription to The New England Journal of Medicine. The winners will be selected by a jury of renowned medical scientists and (bio)medical students.

Plenary presentation: Audience award

The winner of this award will be determined by the audience and the First Year Crew. Despite not having much research experience, the First Year Crew will also judge the plenary sessions as part of the audience with great care. The plenary presenter most appreciated by the audience will receive a cheque of €150, – to spend on visiting a (bio)medical congress of his or her choice, and a one-year online subscription to the world’s leading multidisciplinary science journal ‘the New England Journal of Medicine’ (NEJM).

The Founder’s award

Since this marks the 30th edition of ISCOMS, a special award will be given to one of the presenters. The winner of this award will be determined by ISCOMS’s founders Eric Maarsingh and Kees Poelstra. The prize of this award is yet to be determined and will be handed out by one of the founders themselves.

World Health award

To stimulate and acknowledge students in the research of global health issues and their contribution to global health in general, the WHO supported World Health consists of a one-year online subscription to the Eastern Mediterranean Health Journal (EMHJ). This means that either the presenter comes from a developing country or the subject of the research affects developing countries.

Best Oral Abstract award

The best oral abstracts in clinical sciences, basic sciences and community health will be awarded with an abstract award. Our official jury will select three winners out of the three different sections. Winners will receive a cheque of €150,- to spend on visiting a biomedical congress. 

Session Winners

In each poster and oral session the best presentation will be selected. All session winners will receive an official certificate.
