What Are We Looking For
The ESCRS Pioneer Award is as much to do with the capability to execute a solid research project creating potential clinical impact as it is to do with good clinical science. Any compelling scientific or medical rationale will need to be matched by an equally compelling infrastructure and research expertise that has been demonstrated to deliver on similar initiatives in the past. The combination of clinical science and clinical research expertise is the key to convincing the ESCRS Research Committee of a credible and attractive clinical research programme.
