IRB Barcelona Alumni of Excellence Award 2018 - Call Open


The IRB Barcelona Alumni of Excellence Awards recognize outstanding contributions to science and the scientific community made by young researchers who have completed a significant part of their training and careers at IRB Barcelona. The award is intended to recognize the excellence of researchers since their departure from IRB Barcelona.

In this edition of the award, researchers who left IRB Barcelona between 2010 and 2015 can apply spontaneously or be nominated by IRB Barcelona scientists or alumni. Nominees will be contacted by the IRB Barcelona Alumni Network Office and be requested to complete the application process. The winner will be selected by a jury composed of IRB Barcelona senior scientists.

The IRB Barcelona Alumni of Excellence Award is given with the support of Eppendorf. logo eppendorf
