Trans European Scientific Contest (TESC) 2016
During previous congresses of ESPRM there has been a contest called TESC.
The aim of TESC is to stimulate young physicians in PRM to perform clinical research and to present the results during a European congress.
Each national society has the right to select one young PRM physician to compete in TESC.
The candidate should be a resident or young specialist in PRM not more than 3 years after graduation as PRM specialist.
They should present their own research and have approval of their supervisor.
Because each national society is allowed to delegate one candidate, national societies are requested to organize in their own countries and during the meeting of their national society a selection procedure/national contest in order to select the best candidate from each country.
Your national society is free on how to organize this selection procedure.
The organizing committee of TESC (Henk Stam, Enrique Varela and Thierry Lejeune) and the organizing committee of the 20th European Congress of PRM will need the names of the candidates before March 1st 2016.
After this date no candidates will be accepted for the contest.
The candidates will have to prepare a presentation of 15 minutes including questions and answers.
A jury will be installed consisting of senior researchers coming from countries that have sent a candidate for TESC. The jury will judge the contributions on research quality, presentation and relevance for PRM.
The file will include:
Name of the candidate
CV of the candidate
Contribution of the candidate to the research (design, experiment, analysis, writing, etc.)
Three prizes will be awarded: 1000, 500 and 300 E.
In case you are interested in applying for the TESC award, contact your national society.
