UEG Rising Stars Award
Every year the UEG National Societies Committee and the Scientiﬁc Committee jointly select up to 10 emerging clinical scientists. Those young researchers are awarded Rising Star status based on a track record of international quality research and developing scientiﬁc independence. This initiative provides a durable platform for young researchers so that they can give state-of-the-art lectures, chair scientiﬁc sessions at UEG Week and develop future roles in UEG. An annual call is sent to all UEG Member Societies for nomination of young researchers (40 years or under) with a developing track record of independent, international-quality research.
