Rising Star Awards

Every year the National Societies Committee and the Scientific Committee jointly select up to 10 emerging clinical scientists. 

Those young researchers are awarded Rising Star status based on a track record of international-quality research  and developing scientific independence. This initiative provides a durable platform for young researchers to give state-of-the-art lectures and chair scientific sessions at UEG Week.

Nomination for the Rising Star Award is closed. Candidates will be informed by January 2015 about the status of their nomination.
