ESB Student Awards

“The ESB Student Awards were instituted … with the purpose to honor excellence in biomechanics already at a relatively young age. At every ESB Congress one first prize Student Award and three runner up Awards will be given to four students based on the recommendation of the Awards Committee selecting the four best proceeding abstracts for a final presentation at the ESB Congress and on a secret ballot to select the first place, which will be held amongst the meeting delegates attending the award lectures. The award consists of a certificate for each winner and 1000 € for the first place and 250 € for the runners up donated by Elsevier Science Ltd.” Source: website ESB 2016
