Each year, EASL recognises excellence within the hepatology community. From the EASL Recognition Award to the Fellowship programme, EASL members are awarded for their outstanding achievements throughout the year.
The EASL Emerging Leader Award is a yearly award specifically dedicated to young fellows. Every year, the EASL Governing Board and YI Task Force select YI awardees based on their international liver research achievements to-date. To apply, you must be 40 years old or less and be an active EASL member.
The presence at the ILC is mandatory in order to receive the award. Awardees will also be invited to publish a review in the Journal of Hepatology. Note that a minimum of 3 original articles as first or last author in a journal with an impact factor of 6 or more is required.
