Robert Frank Award Competition

This prestigious scientific award is provided in honour of Prof. Dr. Robert Frank, former President of the IADR & CED-IADR, and one of the founders of CED-IADR. Candidates from the 'Robert Frank Competition Winners' will be selected by our jury to represent CED-IADR at the IADR Unilever Hatton Award Competition at the General Session & Exhibition of the IADR.

How to proceed

  • Submit an abstract at the CED/PER-IADR meeting (see meetings) by using the online abstract submission site and check the box representing the respective award category you wish to compete in (see below the categories junior/senior).
  • Follow additional submission obligations described at the abstract submission site.
  • Apply at the CED-IADR website (here below at the repective category junior/senior)

Once the notification for abstract acceptance was submitted to the presenters, the CED-IADR Board will make a pre-selection out of all abstracts submitted for the competition. All applicants will be informed by email on the results of this pre-selection. 

In case you will be preselected for the CED-IADR Robert Frank competition, the candidates will have to present their abstract by means of 4 slides (no animations) during a separate and closed session in front of a 'CED-IADR Robert Frank Award' jury. 

NOTE: The competition is usually taking place on the Wednesday afternoon during the CED/PER-IADR meeting.

 

Prize

  • first prize of 1.000 EUR + 1 year free membership
  • second prize of 500 EUR + 1 year free membership.

The award winners will be formally announced at the Opening Ceremony during the meeting (usually on Thursday evening).
