Award and Scholarship

EPITER - Best Poster Communication Award in Field Epidemiology

An award for the best poster communication in field epidemiology (www.epiter.org) will be offered by Epiter association, co-organizer of the congress, which supports and promotes field epidemiology.

A broad definition of field epidemiology is the “practice of epidemiology in the field”, i.e. in the community, commonly in a public health service (a unit of government or a closely allied institution) or a research institution. Field epidemiology involves the application of epidemiologic methods to health problems when a rapid, on-site investigation is necessary for implementing timely measures to protect and improve the health of the public. Its methods are designed to answer specific questions in order to plan, implement and/or evaluate public health interventions. A field epidemiologist must consider the needs of those who will use the results. His/her task is not complete until the results of a field investigation/study have been clearly communicated in a timely manner to those who need to know.

This prize will be awarded to a junior professional working in the field of public health and/or epidemiology, less than 35 years of age at the date of the congress, having presented a poster communication reporting results of a study/investigation/surveillance system/interventional research based on a field epidemiology approach, regardless of his/her status (Epiter member or non-member, student or not).

If you think you meet the criteria above mentioned, you can apply for this award by completing the form provided by clicking here. The selection of the winner will be made by the Epiter members of the scientific committee of Euro-Epi 2018.

The prize consists of a reimbursement of conference registration fees.
