A €100,000 award will be given on June 14 to Europe’s best early career scientist who presents the most promising research project in the field of environmental and ecological risk assessment. Deadline for submissions is March 18.
Every year, the LRI Award offers a young European scientist with less than ten years post-doctoral experience the chance to put into practice his research ideas in the field of environmental and ecological risk assessment.
The presentation of the three LRI Innovative Science Award finalists and the selection of the winner will take place in Brussels on June 14, 2011. The selected scientist will present the results of their award-supported research at the LRI Annual Workshop on November 17, 2011.
“Award recipients receive greater visibility for their work, which often leads to additional support from other sources and more interaction with other researchers and research institutions”, Gernot Klotz, Cefic Research & Innovation Executive Director said.
