Every year the EAU hands out a number of prestigious awards to recognise and celebrate dedication and innovation in urological research and practice.
Traditionally handed out at the Annual EAU Congress, the awards are a vital acknowledgement of the fact that the international urological community is progressive and continues to push the limits of what is known to mankind today. Also this year the awards will be handed out during the 35th Annual EAU Congress in Amsterdam. The award winners will also be recognised in the EAU Award Gallery and the Congress Newspaper.
The two EAU Prizes for Best Paper published in Urological Literature are tools through which the EAU encourages young and promising urological scientists to continue their work and to communicate their achievements to the European urological community.
Two awards of €5,000 each will be made available for the two Best Papers published in Urological Literature on Clinical and Fundamental Research. These papers have to be published or accepted for publication between 1 July 2018 and 30 June 2019.
