With this Diversity prize, the ALBA Network
and the FENS-Kavli Scholars
wish to highlight a scientist that has made outstanding contributions to promoting equality and diversity in brain sciences.
The promotion of equality and diversity — e.g. by gender, race, sexual orientation, class, or culture — in research depends upon leaders and role models that catalyse a full integration of all scientists across academic levels. This annual award will recognise an individual that has made outstanding contributions to this effort, including but not limited to advocacy, mentorship or the creation of diversity-promoting initiatives.
Prize: The awardee will receive prize money of €2000 for personal use and additional financial support to cover the awardee’s travel to and participation in the conference where the prize will be awarded.
Eligibility: This year we will celebrate the efforts of those researchers who are not PIs. They could be postdoctoral researchers, staff scientists or long-term technical staff. They should be based in Europe and working at least 50% in a European research institution.
Procedure: The call welcomes nominations of an individual by someone as well as self-nomination. Applications should include a statement (max. 1 page) indicating the merits of the nominee on promoting equality and diversity in the field of brain sciences and any relevant activities organised by the nominee to contribute to this goal.
Nomination deadline: 14 March 2022, 23:59 CET
