  • Reminder: Nomination 2006 ESB S.M. Perren Award

    2006 ESB S.M. Perren Award

    The deadline for application for the 2006 S.M. Perren Award of the European Society of Biomechanics (ESB) is January 15, 2006.

    Time is closing in. This is one of the last chances for you to send your nomination.

    This award, which is the most prestigious award of ESB, will be given to the first author of the best scientific paper submitted to the Chairman of the Award Committee. Papers should be based on original research and be previously unpublished. The scientific merit of the paper will be judged by the ESB Award Committee. Papers should be submitted in the format required for the Journal of Biomechanics. The award is open to all areas of biomechanics research and to both members and non-members. The award includes a honorarium of 10,000 Swiss francs (approx. €6,500) sponsored by the AO Foundation in Davos, Switzerland, and a certificate which is presented after the S.M. Perren Award Lecture at the biennial ESB Congress 2006 in Munich.

    The mission of the European Society of Biomechanics (ESB) is to promote excellence in biomechanics research, to foster integration of clinical and basic science, and to facilitate the translation of that science to health care and clinical practice. One way in which ESB supports its mission and promotes excellence is by recognition of outstanding members by prestigious awards given at the biennial ESB Congress. All ESB members are eligible for the different Society awards, except as restricted by specific award criteria.
