Doha, 2 May 2021 - Aspetar and The International Sports Medicine Federation (FIMS) has a long history of collaborating on research and education in sports medicine and science. Aspetar is therefore proud to present the Young Investigator Awards for the third time, as part of 36th World Congress of Sports Medicine in Athens-Greece from September 24th to 27th 2021 at the Megaron Athens International Conference Center.
These awards, presented to 4 researchers for the best poster and oral presentations during this biannual congress, aim to encourage and support young scientists, and reward outstanding dissemination of their work to an international audience.
The Aspetar Young Investigator Award will enable young and established researchers and clinicians to further develop and apply the highest standards of research in sports medicine and science to benefit ongoing basic and clinical research projects.
All eligible reward winners must be within six years of completing a research degree or medical residency and must not hold a level higher than assistant professor.
The Aspetar Young Investigator Awards Committee, five experienced scientists and clinicians from Aspetar and FIMS, will independently evaluate the presentations using standardised assessment templates.
Since establishing a formal partnership with FIMS in 2016, Aspetar has contributed to the ongoing success of the FIMS World Congress of Sports Medicine through key note lectures, symposia and workshops on various sports medicine and science topics.
As one of the world leaders in sports medicine and science, Aspetar continues to prioritise extensive clinical, research and education collaborations with many local, regional and international individuals, institutions and organisations.
