Young Scientists - Travel Awards


The Young Scientists Travel Award aims to encourage young and promising researchers on whom progress in the field of acupuncture, TCM and related techniques relies on. It rewards four scientific projects addressing any topic related to acupuncture, TCM or related techniques – be it etiology, pathophysiology, diagnosis, treatement of symptoms or diseases. All submitted abstracts compete for a limited number of 4 Travel Grants.

Each of the four Young Scientists Travel Awards is worth 500 Euro to cover travel costs to attend the ICMART Congress.

The award will be delivered to the author presenting the scientific project at the congress.

Physicians, scientists, medical students and other healthcare providers currently in residency or fellowship programs can apply. Candidates should submit an abstract summarizing their research project. In addition, applicants are required to upload a brief curriculum vitae of the authors and a statement in English meant for the general audience and describing why this scientific contribution should be awarded. The awardee will be selected by an independent committee made up of members of the ICMART Scientific Committee and will be assessed by the following criteria:

b) level of clinical and/or scientific relevance

c) scientific rigor and contribution of the applicant to the research project.

The ICMART Science Award 2022 will be delivered during the upcoming ICMART Congress in Bologna.

The 4 awardees will be refunded the registration fee by the AMAB.
