Young Investigator Award

The highest scoring abstracts from young investigators submitted for presentation at the annual conference may qualify for an oral presentation in this category.

Successful Young Investigators who are invited to make an oral presentation at the annual conference will be awarded €500 towards their costs to attend the annual conference to present their paper. However all presenters must have applied officially for a bursary prior to the conference and will be reimbursed after the conference.
