Best student talk prize in Porto

Prize for the best student oral, the first time in Porto!

It is with great pleasure that EAFP announces a prize for the best young scientist oral presentation to be awarded during the 19th International Conference on Fish and Shellfish Diseases in Porto (09 to 12 September 2019).

Eligible oral presentations are those that will be delivered by a PhD student or postdoctoral fellow. Total 174 abstracts have been submitted by PhD students and postdoctoral fellow, including with 86 for oral presentations and 88 for posters.

The sponsor of this prize is the EuroMarine network that actively tries to support young marine scientists in Europe since 2018 . In an effort to increase its visibility while fulfilling the aim to support early-career scientists, EuroMarine offers a prize of 200 Euros to the best student oral presentation. 

Hoping that this incentive will additionally encourage young scientists to engage in EAFP activities, I am looking forward to hosting you in Porto!
