As an authority that leads pressure ulcer research in Europe as well as internationally, the EPUAP recognises leadership and contributions to pressure ulcer research by awarding two prizes each year at its annual meeting:
The EPUAP Novice Investigator Award
– Awarded to a researcher at an early career stage
The EPUAP Experienced Investigator Award
– Awarded for a significant, internationally-recognized contribution to pressure ulcer research
Both prizes were awarded for either basic science or clinical science achievements, and reflected accomplishments that clearly contribute to advancing the field. The prizes were awarded by the President of EPUAP at the Annual Conference Dinner. Laureates of the EPUAP Novice and Experienced Investigator Awards were to give talks at the EPUAP Annual Conference following the Award Notification, in a special plenary session named “The EPUAP Novice and Experienced Investigator Award Lectures”.
Free paper and poster abstracts
EPUAP continued with the two successful new initiatives launched in the previous annual meeting – oral poster presentations and student free paper session, and there was to be an award for the best poster presented by the President of the EPUAP at the Gala Dinner. There was also a free paper session on the main program for graduate students who wished to present their research studies and an award for the best student free paper also to be presented by the President of EPUAP at the Gala Dinner.
