The European Young Researchers’ Award (EYRA), is granted by EuroScience since 2010 to young researchers showing exceptional research achievement and leadership. Its aim is to encourage early-career researchers to integrate a European dimension and context in their research. Two awards are granted every two years to: a) a PhD candidate and b) a postdoctoral fellow.

The prize-giving ceremony for the two awards is held at the biennial EuroScience flagship event, EuroScience Open Forum (ESOF). The winners will be rewarded with a certificate, get free participation to ESOF and a grant covering travel and accommodation costs as well as one year free EuroScience Membership!

The European dimension in the research must be very clear, either embedded in a collaboration of researchers on European level or the research is conducted in one European country, or it addresses a research topic of European dimension.
