Aiming to promote scientific and clinical research from an early stage, we encourage health science students to submit their research project abstracts. The Research Competition therefore offers a unique set where undergraduate and recently graduated students can experience the research world.
If your work is among the best you will have the chance to present your research results to congress attendees while competing for prizes. You can read the Research Competition Guidelines here.
The Research Competition is now open!
The Research Competition is composed of two parallel categories: the Basic Research Category and the Clinical Research Category. The candidates in each category compete within the category, and in each one the top two winners will be selected.
There are three different phases in the Research Competition:
· Abstract Submission Phase
The Abstract Submission phase ended on December 22nd 2017 at 23h59 GMT+0h00.
· Poster Sessions
The Poster Sessions are divided in two days and will happen on March 16th and 17th, Friday and Saturday, in the Congress venue. You will present your poster on either day to a jury composed of researchers and physicians of scientific excellence and of various backgrounds.
· Plenary Sessions
The best poster presentations in each category will be selected, and will be presented orally in the Plenary Session, which will happen on March 18th, Sunday. There, the best three presentations in each category will be selected and the winners announced.
