Rising Star Awards

Every year the National Societies Committee and the Scientific Committee jointly select 8-10 emerging clinical scientists. 

These 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.

Application for Rising Stars 2017 will open June 2016
