ERA Awards

The ERA has three prestigious Awards which are bestowed upon outstanding clinical and basic science investigator members of our society:

  • Award for Outstanding clinical contributions to nephrology and/or dialysis and/or transplantation
  • Award for Outstanding basic science contributions to nephrology and/or dialysis and/or transplantation
  • Award for Research excellence in nephrology (clinical or basic science)

The nomination is open to all ERA members who can submit proposals for outstanding colleagues who could be nominated. Nominees must be ERA members.

Please keep in mind that for the Research Excellence Award there is an additional requirement: the candidate must be between 41 and 60 years old in the year of the nomination.

All nominations must be accompanied by recommendation letters which must clearly specify:

  • the category of the Award (Clinical contribution, Basic Science contribution or Research Excellence) of the supporting candidate;
  • the candidate’s H-Index calculated using the Web of Science;
  • the candidate’s scientific achievements.

In case of questions about the procedure, feel free to send an email to sab@era-online.org.
