Nominees should be female scientists working in an EMBC Member State or FEBS member country, who have made outstanding contributions to life sciences research and significantly advanced our understanding of a particular discipline in the last five years in Europe. The award is generally not meant to be for lifetime achievements. Their research can cover any area of the life sciences including agricultural and biomedical research.
The closing date for nominations for the 2024 award is 15 October 2023.
Submit your nomination via this link. The nomination consists of:
- Nomination form
- Support letter 1
- Support letter 2
- Nominee CV (max. three pages).
The nomination form asks the nominator to give details of the nominee’s contribution(s) to the field and describe any outstanding achievements. Please include evidence of international recognition, leadership and mentorship qualities, honours and awards, as well as any activities to support gender diversity in science. The support letters should come from two additional scientists (i.e. not the nominator). There is no requirement for the nominee, nominator or supporters to be associated with EMBO or FEBS.
The committee finds it informative to have an overview of the candidate’s career, but is most interested in contributions within the last five years.
