Five prizes are awarded yearly, with deep attention to setting the criteria and carrying out the judging because we are keenly aware that our winners will say a lot about us as an organisation. Our winners not only promote themselves and their institutions but their work celebrates the excellence and innovation in learning and research that EUPRERA stands for.
The awarding ceremonies take place on the occasion of our annual congress.
