Every year, the National Societies Committee and the UEG Scientific Committee jointly select 6-8 emerging clinical scientists as 'Rising Stars'. The selection is based on a track record of international quality research and on scientific independence. This initiative provides a durable platform for these young researchers to further improve and progress in their professional careers.

  • 40 years of age or younger at the time of application (add two years to age limit per child as main carer)
  • Must have as country of residence Europe and/or a country bordering the Mediterranean Sea 
  • Candidates may apply a maximum 3 times for the Rising Star Award

To apply, please follow these steps:
