Pioneer Award

The award is given at each World Congress to three individuals to honor those who have made major contributions to the field as it has developed. The contributions may be in research, clinical, or administrative areas but must be internationally recognized as significant to the growth of the field. Pioneer Awardees receive round trip economy air travel and accommodation, paid registration fees and appropriate recognition at the meeting.


Detailed instructions on how to apply for the Pioneer Award including the application form will be posted here. In the meantime, should you have any questions please contact the CINP Office.
