EAACI – Allergopharma Research Award
The EAACI – Allergopharma Research Award was first established in 2000 on the initiative of Allergopharma Joachim Ganzer KG and in collaboration with the European Academy of Allergy and Clinical Immunology. It is intended that the Award should recognize scientific achievement of young scientists working in the field of allergy and encourage their engagement in further research. Therefore, the Award is open to Junior Members of EAACI, who have conducted their research in a European centre.

The award is valued with EUR 10,000 and will be granted to the institution or research organisation the awardee primarily conducts the research for.
The awardee will be presented with the award during the Opening Ceremony of the Annual EAACI Congress. Registration, travel and accommodation to the Congress will be supported by the grant.
Any EAACI Junior Member (JM) may apply personally for the award using the online system provided.
