Rafaelsen Young Investigators Award

In 1986 Ole Rafaelsen and William Bunney were instrumental in establishing a CINP programme supporting the attendance of young scientists at the XVth CINP Congress. That programme was posthumously named the Rafaelsen Fellowship Award to honour Dr. Rafaelsen, who died in 1987.

The recipients of the CINP 2020 World Congress Awards will be chosen by an international scientific jury in March 2020. Seven awardees will be selected and presented with the award consisting of travel expense reimbursement (amount depends on the country of departure; terms and conditions apply), three nights’ accommodation, a certificate, a USD 150 cash stipend for ground transportation and complimentary registration fee for the 2020 CINP World Congress in Taipei, Taiwan. Selected recipients will also have the opportunity to present their abstract orally as part of the Rafaelsen Symposium, after which a jury will name one of the presenters the winner of the CINP prize for best young researcher (who will receive a diploma).
