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 Nature. 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. The presenter most appreciated by the audience will receive a cheque of €150,- to spend on visiting a biomedical congress of his or her choice.

Plenary awards

Plenary presentation: First Year Jury award

This is a special award, as the jury consists of first year (bio)medical students only. Despite not having much research experience, they will judge the plenary sessions open minded and with great care. The winner of this award will receive €150,- and a goodie bag from the journal Disease Models & Mechanisms.

Best Oral Abstract award

The best oral abstracts will be awarded with either an abstract award for the clinical sciences or the basic sciences. Our official jury will select two winners out of all different topics. 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.

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.
