The FEBS/EMBO Women in Science Award is a joint initiative of EMBO and the Federation of European Biochemical Societies (FEBS). Launched in 2007, the aim of the award is to highlight the major contributions being made by female scientists to life sciences research. Winners of the award will be presented as inspiring role models for future generations of women in science.
Each year the award will reward the exceptional achievements of one woman working in the life sciences in Europe. The winner will be honoured at the annual FEBS Congress, where she will receive an award of EUR 10,000 and present a special plenary lecture. The first award will be made at the 2008 FEBS Congress in Athens, Greece.
Nominees should be women scientists working in Europe who have made outstanding contributions to life sciences research in their career and significantly advanced our understanding of a particular discipline. Their research can cover any area of the life sciences including agricultural and biomedical research.
