What Are We Looking For

The ESCRS Clinical Research Awards are as much to do with the capability to execute a solid research project creating near-term clinical impact as they are to do with good clinical science. Any compelling scientific or medical rationale will need to be matched by an equally compelling infrastructure and research expertise that has been demonstrated to deliver on similar initiatives in the past. The combination of clinical science and clinical research expertise is the key to convincing the Judging Panel and your peers of a credible and attractive clinical research programme.
