"Young Researcher" Award at the 5th International Congress Sport, Doping and Society

Young Researcher Award, V International Congress Sport, Doping and Society

Health and sport are two terms directly linked: the more sport you do, the healthier you are. In this line, ENGSO Youth not only believes on the integrity of the sport values, but also on the integrity of the people’s health. In the last few years ENGSO Youth has been involved in many initiatives related to doping prevention in sports and this time ENGSO Youth is an official partner at the 5th International Congress, Sport, Doping and Society.

The Spanish Agency for Health Protection in Sport (AEPSAD) organizes together with the Technical University of Madrid this world-wide congress to be held from 15 to 17 February at the Faculty of Sciences of Physical Activity and Sport of the UPM (Madrid). This high level congress will have first line speakers, among others, Mr. David Howman (World Anti-Doping Agency Director until June 2016) and Hajo Seppelt (journalist who published the Russian scandal on German TV).

One of the objectives of the Congress is to share the results of scientific research and new methods in the field of doping in sport. Congress set up the 'Young Researchers' Award for young people under 35 (dated February 17, 2017). From ENGSO Youth, we believe it is a great opportunity for young people in the field of doping in sport to raise their voice and share their academic or scientific experience by submitting their abstract.

To qualify for the award, applicants must send the summary and the full text of the communication before 31 October 2016. The Congress’s Scientific Committee will decide the winner of the prize, which will be presented during the closing ceremony of the Congress on 17th February in Madrid.

To consult all regulations and abstract submission deadlines, please find all necessary information at Abstract normative.

Congress registration fees with reduced price before 31/12/2016 can be made at the official website.
