Young Scientist Research Award
Description: The continuously changing interests and knowledge in the field of Paediatric Dentistry have inspired the European Academy of Paediatric Dentistry to organise an Award for the best research presentation on a subject of importance for Paediatric Dentistry, given by a young scientist. Candidates should be EAPD members in good standing who are under the age of 40 years on the date of the EAPD Congress.
Award: There will be 2 prizes awarded. Winners receive an amount of €1000 and a certificate.
The winners are announced by the EAPD President, at the Closing Ceremony of the Congress.
Procedure: EAPD members wishing to participate in this competition must submit their abstract during the submission period of the EAPD Congress, indicating in the system that they are candidates for the Young Scientist Research Award. The Scientific Committee will review and evaluate all abstracts submitted for this competition. Among eligible abstracts and based on their ranking, a limited number will be shortlisted for entry into the competition at the Congress. The presenting authors of these shortlisted abstracts will be informed by the Scientific Committee and must present their research orally at the relevant EAPD Young Scientist Research Award Competition session at the Congress. The abstract should be presented by the pre-assigned presenting author, otherwise the abstract will be withdrawn from the competition but can be presented as a regular abstract. The presentation by each shortlisted candidate will be judged by three senior members of the EAPD, who will decide on the winner and runner-up for this award.
Abstracts that were not shortlisted for entry into the Young Scientist Research Award Competition may still be accepted for presentation at the Congress.
Research abstract and presentation requirements: All research abstracts submitted for the EAPD Young Scientist Research Award Competition should follow the instructions for authors regarding ‘research abstracts’ as they appear in the ‘Abstract submission guidelines for authors’ section.
- This award is only open to any category of EAPD members in good standing (membership fee paid) under the age of 40 years on the date of the EAPD Congress. All other applicants will be rejected.

- The winners of this award are expected to submit a manuscript with their research findings for publication in the European Archives of Paediatric Dentistry within 6-9 months after the Congress.
