EAACI Allergopharma Award 2018
The EAACI Allergopharma Research Award was first established in 2000 on the initiative of Allergopharma Joachim Ganzer KG in collaboration with the European Academy of Allergy and Clinical Immunology. It is intended that the award should recognise scientific achievement of young scientists working in the field of allergy and encourage their engagement in further research. Therefore, the award is open to EAACI Junior Members who have conducted their research in a European centre.

The award is valued at 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 EAACI Allergopharma Research Award during the Opening Ceremony of EAACI’s annual congress, EAACI Congress 2018 in Munich. Registration, travel and accommodation to the congress will be supported by the grant.
Any EAACI Junior Member Assembly (JMA) may apply for the award via an online system which will be available on our EAACI website starting from 2 October 2017 until 31 December 2017 at 24:00 CET.

Application submission is now closed.
