The European Young Researchers’ Award (EYRA) is granted to researchers demonstrating outstanding research performance and leadership. At the same time, the award aims to inspire early stage and experienced researchers to incorporate a European dimension and perspective into their research.
The Award is granted each year but the prize-giving-ceremony is held every two years at the EuroScience Open Forum (ESOF) where the two recipients will present their work. The Award consists of a Certificate and a grant to cover travel and accommodation for the stay in the ESOF city.
An international selection Committee will evaluate the applications and select the Awardee.
Please note, that the call for 2013 is dedicated to PhD candidates only.
Deadline is 30th April 2013.
