Young Scientists Awards

The Young Scientists Award aims to encourage young and promising researchers on whom progress in the field of acupuncture, TCM and related techniques relies on. It rewards four scientific projects addressing any topic related to acupuncture, TCM or related techniques – be it etiology, pathophysiology, diagnosis, treatment of symptoms or diseases. All submitted abstracts compete for a limited number of 4 Grants.

Each of the four Young Scientists Awards is worth 500 Euro.
The award will be delivered to the author presenting the scientific project at the congress.

Physicians, scientists, medical students and other healthcare providers currently in residency or fellowship programs can apply. Candidates should submit an abstract summarising their research project. In addition, applicants are required to upload a brief curriculum vitae of the authors and a statement in English meant for the general audience and describing why this scientific contribution should be awarded.

The awardee will be selected by an independent committee made up of members of the ICMART Scientific Committee and will be assessed by the following criteria:
a) innovation
b) level of clinical and/or scientific relevance
c) scientific rigor and contribution of the applicant to the research project.

The ICMART Science Award 2023 will be delivered during the upcoming ICMART Congress in Amsterdam

Applicants do not have to register for the congress. Preconditions for payment of the award are attendance* of the awardee during the award ceremony and an oral presentation of the research project in one of the congress sessions. The non-winners have to pay the registration fee if they want to attend the congress.

The deadline for submitting abstracts is May 5th, 2023
