The YoungProAward in Regenerative Dentistry was inaugurated by Straumann and botiss biomaterials at the botiss bone & tissue days World Congress in 2014, with the aim of fostering the development of young dental professionals in the field of regenerative dentistry and dental biomaterials research. The Award therefore focuses on dental professionals, including practitioners, students, researchers etc., who are under the age of 35.
We cordially invite applications for the Award, in the form of written abstracts presenting original work that contributes to the advancement of treatment/care or research in regenerative dentistry. Dissertations, projects or practical experience may form the basis of applications.
Submissions will be judged by a peer panel in a blind review process. The jury comprises leading academics/clinicians, who are internationally renowned authorities in the field and recognized experts from the industry. The winning application will be selected on the basis of its clinical and/or scientific quality as judged from the abstract and submitted materials.
The winner will receive a cash prize of €10 000 as well as travel to, and participation at, the biennial bone & tissue days World Congress in Berlin, where the Award will be presented and announced to the media. The winner will present her/his abstract at the congress and it will be subsequently published on STARGET Digital.
The two runners-up will also be offered participation at the botiss bone & tissue days event in Berlin including a substantial contribution to their travel and accommodation costs.
