The Maternity Prize is attributed every two years at the European Congress of Perinatal Medicine, to one Obstetrician and one Neonatologist who have distinguished themselves in their professional career and dedication to the field of Perinatal Medicine.
Candidates may be proposed by anyone from inside or outside the field of Perinatal Medicine. Proposals should be sent by email to the Secretary-General of the EAPM at least 9 months before the start of the European Congress of Perinatal Medicine.
This email must include the full name of the candidate, country of residence, and a Word file with all the information relevant to the attribution of the prize:
• Short summary of the professional career not exceeding one A4 page, including personal efforts to improve Perinatal Medicine in Europe.
• List of papers published in peer-reviewed international journals, list of published scientific books, list of invited lectures at international scientific meetings.
The jury for attribution of the prize is constituted by all Executive Board members of the EAPM, who can therefore not be nominated for attribution of the prize. Voting will take place at the last Executive Board meeting held before the European Congress of Perinatal Medicine. A majority vote, by secret ballot, is required for attribut on of the prize. Voting on the various candidates will be repeated as many times as necessary, after excluding the candidate with the lowest number of votes, until a majority decision is reached. Interim results of the voting procedure will not be revealed to the outside.
