Stop searching – Start finding! Who will be the winner of the 2013 Early Researcher Award?

Farina Hodiamont, Congress Coordinator of the 13th EAPC World Congress, says it’s time to start thinking about nominations for the next Early Researcher Award


After a European summer, which by some was spent searching for shade and a cool breeze and by others for blue spots in a grey sky and a pair of dry socks, Europe can now finally stop searching and instead start finding – namely the next winner of the EAPC Early Researcher Award (ERA)! As at past congresses, the EAPC would like to honour young (novice) scientists and clinicians for their outstanding contributions to palliative care. The award aims to highlight their personal career development and their potential for the future. The successful candidate will be asked to give a plenary lecture at the 13th EAPC World Congress. Three award winners will be selected. The winner of the first prize will be invited to present his/her work to an international audience by giving a plenary lecture at the 13th EAPC World Congress in Prague, Czech Republic, in May/June 2013. Travel costs, accommodation and registration fee will all be covered. The winners of the joint second prize will be publicly honoured at the congress and on the congress home page. The EAPC will be happy to cover their registration fees. In making your nomination, please make sure that your candidate agrees to be nominated and to give a plenary lecture in English. The EAPC is looking forward to your nomination!
