Call for Nominations – ESO Awards 2020

Dear ESO Members,

Each year, ESO presents two awards during the ESO Conference.

All ESO members are asked to nominate candidates for these two awards:

The ESO Lifetime / Presidential Award is bestowed upon an advanced career person who has made a significant impact on stroke care internationally over many years, someone who has had an important influence on educational or political development for stroke care across Europe or even worldwide. The achievement thus need not be research based but may involve leadership, mentorship, implementation, or changing of attitudes.

The second ESO award is the Scientific Excellence Award. This award is given to a “rising star”, a mid-career researcher, for whom an award for repeated research excellence could assist advancement to a final career position.

After the deadline, all nominations will be reviewed and evaluated by the ESO Awards Selection committee. Their proposal will be discussed by the ESO Executive Committee, who will take the final decision.

We would like to invite all ESO Members to nominate candidates for

  • ESO’s Presidential Award;
  • ESO’s Scientific Excellence Award

by e-mail to

We look forward to receiving your nominations by 10 January 2020.
