THE ACTERIA PRIZES TO YOUNG EUROPEAN RESEARCHERS WILL BE AWARDED YEARLY.
Starting from 2020, the ACTERIA Prize, a prestigious award reserved for European researchers in immunology and allergology, will be awarded yearly instead of every three years.
The announcement was made by the Fondation Acteria (ACTing on European Research in Immunology and Allergology), the European Federation of Immunological Societies (EFIS) and the Swiss Society for Allergology and Immunology.
Established in 2012, the ACTERIA Prizes are awarded to recognize and reward Europe’s young scientists in the fields of immunology and allergology. The Prizes, two each in Immunology and Allergology, honor outstanding achievements in fundamental research performed in a European-based institute by researchers with up to 10 years postdoctoral research experience and doctoral theses defended in the last 3 years before the award. The ACTERIA Prizes foresee cash awards plus the potential funding of three-year research projects to be performed in European institutions.
