Awards within the EU Chapter

The deadline for the submission of nominations for the 2017 TERMIS-EU Awards Program is Tuesday, 28 February 2017.

The TERMIS-EU awards was offered for the first time in 2013 and awarded at the 2013 TERMIS-EU Istanbul conference.

As approved unanimously by the TERMIS-EU Council the following awards will be given by the TERMIS-EU chapter:

The criteria for each award were initially defined by the chair in this document and are presented to the council to review and approve.

Career Achievement Award

The Career Achievement Award will be awarded to an established researcher who has made long-term, landmark contributions to the TERM field. It will be given to a widely respected researcher who has contributed considerably to the tissue engineering and regenerative medicine field. It should acknowledge an individual for his/her outstanding, continued contributions to the field, which includes a sustained in time significant contribution to the literature.

This award is aimed towards a recognition of individuals that have made outstanding contributions to the field of TERM, with outputs of clear professional excellence in their area; for example as scientists, clinicians, educators and/or contributors to TERMIS activities. The awardee must have a proven record of excellence and an outstanding international recognition in the TERM arena. There should be a significant and profound evidence of the awardee.s major contributions to the development and status of tissue engineering and regenerative medicine and its evolution as a field. The awardee should have carried out most of his career in the TERMIS-EU geographical area.

Robert Brown Early Career Principal Investigator Award

The Robert Brown Early Career Principal Investigator Award recognizes an individual, who has demonstrated outstanding achievements in the field of tissue engineering and regenerative medicine research, during the early stages of his career with clear evidence of a growing profile.

Candidates for the TERMIS-EU Early Career Principal Investigator Award must have been awarded his/her first PhD (or equivalent doctoral degree) more than 2 and less than 10 years prior to the deadline of the call.

The awardee must demonstrate evidence of high quality publications in highly cited journals, leadership activities, grant income from major funding bodies and external recognition amongst the wider international TERM community.

Contributions to the Literature Award

The Contributions to the Literature Award is aimed to recognize the outstanding publication records of researcher in the TERM field. The awardee will have made significant contributions to the literature on the basic and/or applied areas of tissue engineering and regenerative medicine. The importance of the contributions will be evidenced by an outstanding bibliometric record, namely systematic publications in relevant good quality scientific journals, including original and review papers, as well as, when appropriate, monographs, textbooks, edited or short communications. The recipient of the award should also show evidence of highly and frequently cited research.

Clinical/Translation Work or Innovation/Technology Award

The Clinical/Translation Work or Innovation/Technology Award aims to recognize successful clinical and translation work that leads to the development of relevant products or therapies used in the treatment of patients.
The awards will be presented alternately at the annual meeting.

The first year will offer the Clinical/Translational Award which will be given for individuals who have demonstrated they have made a major contribution to bringing new therapies to the clinic through translation. The Innovation /Technology Award also recognizes the application of basic and/or applied TERM research for the development of innovative medical products and therapies that have an ultimate impact on health care provision and treatment of patients. TERM must be a major part of the innovation. For the innovation award relevant patents should have been awarded.

In summary the award aims to acknowledge relevant clinical/translational work and/or specific technological innovations that are significant improvements over the state-of-the-art and show clear evidence of patient benefit and improved quality of life.

Awards Committee

The Awards Committee will be chaired by the Immediate Past Chair of the TERMIS-EU chapter. The other members of the EU Awards Committee will be the current Chair and the Chair-Elect, as well as the SYIS-EU Chair (ex officio members of the committee).
