During the conclusive plenary session of the EBA conference the winner of the first EBA Poster Award will be elected. In total over 40 poster presenters compete for the Award. The winner gets a certificate and a prize of € 250.
The EBA Scientific Advisory Council (SAC) selected 24 EBA poster presenters from 10 different countries. In addition, attendees of the Transbio Summer School will also present their posters. All of them compete for the first EBA Poster Award.
An expert jury, consisting of a selection of SAC members, will review all posters. They will choose three nominees. Each of them will pitch their poster during the conclusive plenary session on the second conference day. The EBA conference participants will then vote and thus elect the overall winner.
This initiative is the start of a new tradition and will be continued during next editions of the EBA conference. Susanna Pflüger, EBA Secretary General, comments: “We consider the poster session an important element of our conference. Establishing this award underlines that we highly value the innovative contributions from our poster presenters.”
