The Michael Prize is one of the most highly regarded international awards for research contributing to further developments in epileptology. It is awarded at the biennially organized International Epilepsy Congresses, and is now open for applications of younger researchers who have not yet reached the age of 45 at the time of the application deadline.
To ensure adequate consideration of the multiple aspects of epileptology, the prize is awarded in three out of a total of nine categories, each of which is endowed with 15.000 Euros. For 2023, the Michael Prize will be awarded for research in the following 3 categories:
- pharmacology / pharmacotherapy
- psychiatry, psychology and neuropsychology
- experimental epilepsy research
Applicants may submit up to three scientific papers in English language, papers published or accepted for publication; at least one of the papers, already published or not, must be
from the period 2021 – 2022.
The papers ( publications or manuscripts ) must be submitted to STIFTUNG MICHAEL before December 31, 2022 together with a curriculum vitae and with an indication to which of the three eligible categories the applicant's research is referring to.
