ESSM Prestige Awards

The Executive Committee of ESSM decided to establish two awards to be presented during the annual meetings of the society:

ESSM Career Award

This award will be presented to a senior scientist who has made an outstanding contribution in the field. The Executive and Scientific Committees will decide the award winner, and the award winner will be presented during the Opening Ceremony of the annual meeting.

ESSM Award of Excellence 2017

Every year ESSM awards the most talented European researcher with the prestigious ESSM Award of Excellence. This award is presented annually to a physician or scientist under the age of 40 years (either in basic sciences or clinical practice) who has made recent exceptional achievement in the field.

Applicants should be below the age of 40 years at the deadline of application for the award, and have an excellent scientific curriculum vitae, primarily devoted to sexual medicine. Applicants should must be an ESSM member for at least 2 years prior to the application, in perfect order with the fulfilment of the membership fee payments.

The award-winning scientist will present a state-of-the-art lecture at the ESSM congress, and will receive €5.000 prize money accompanying the award.

Applications should consist of a curriculum vitae, a letter of motivation from the candidate specifying his or her contributions to the field sexual medicine, and a letter of recommendation from an ESSM member. Applications can be sent to our secretarial office (admin@essm.org) before October 1st, 2017.

The candidates are invited to submit a curriculum vitae as much complete and detailed as possible. In this context, it is necessary that the curriculum vitae details the total number of publications in peer reviewed and indexed journals with impact factors. Furthermore, publications and works pertaining to sexual medicine should be highlighted.

Applications will be judged and selections made by the executive committee of the ESSM.

With sincere regards,

Maarten Albersen
Scientific Chairman ESSM
