Students' European Ecology Prize
During the EEF Congress the Federation awards the “Students´European Ecology Prize" to honour the best oral contribution presented by a student participant. Abstracts submitted to the Congress by students (as first author and presenter) will be reviewed by a committee of the EEF and a selected number of talks will be evaluated by committee members during the conference. The quality of the submitted extended abstract is very important in determining consideration for the Prize.
The prize is endowed with 200 € and a free publication in WebEcology.
Change to the Students' European Ecology Prize in 2013
In 2013, the Students' European Ecology Prize will be awarded to the best student poster, rather than oral presentation.
