Early Career Investigator Award


The Early Career Investigator Award is intended to support clinicians and basic scientists to present their original work in the field of adrenal insufficiency at either ESPE or ECE. The award will cover the costs of preparing a poster (if applicable), as well as travel to the meeting and delegate registration. A limited number of awards is available each year, and all applications will be judged objectively by an independent panel.


Candidates should be working in Germany, Austria or the UK. Basic scientists should be no more than 8 years since completing their PhD. Doctors should be yet to complete their specialty training. Nurses should be no more than 10 years since commencing work in paediatric endocrinology or endocrinology.

The abstract should be in the field of adrenal insufficiency of any cause and should be formatted for the intended congress (ESPE or ECE). The intention is to make the award to the first author of work which is original and has not been presented elsewhere.


Applications should be made on the Diurnal website at the link below. Applications may be made at any time. The next deadline for judging is 31 January 2021.

The award is conditional on the abstract being accepted, and the recipient being available to attend the entire congress.
