The Jubilee Congress will be highly interesting for all professionals involved in clinical care and research related to organ donation and transplantation. Besides physicians, surgeons and transplant researchers, all different allied health professionals involved in transplantation and donation such as clinical and donation coordinators are warmly welcome.
The meeting is also addressed to medical ethicists, politicians, patient representatives and even journalists. Furthermore, we cordially invite also families and relatives of organ donors and transplanted patients to be present.
We look forward to seeing you at this very memorable congress!

Henk Schippers Young Investigator Award
Henk Schippers became the first Eurotransplant Director in 1970. After 5 years, he was appointed Secretary/Treasurer of the Board until his death in 2003. Henk laid the foundations for the administration of Eurotransplant. He successfully completed negotiations with the insurance companies and initiated the international network, which is now a hallmark of Eurotransplant. To commemorate his pioneering work for Eurotransplant a young investigator award in his name was established in 2003.
The 2016 HSYIA winner: Dr. Georg Györi from the Medical University in Vienna, Austria.
The purpose of this award is to encourage young clinical and/or scientific investigators to pursue a career in the field of organ and tissue transplantation. It is our hope that this research will be invigorated by the work of young, talented individuals supported by stable multi-year funding. The Henk Schippers Young Investigator Award is especially meant to enable the investigator to present his/her results of clinical and/or scientific organ transplantation related investigations at well recognized and respected international transplantation congresses or symposia, e.g. European Society for Organ Transplantation (ESOT).
Candidates (< 40 years) must have attained a masters or PhD degree. Individuals at the Associate Professor level are not eligible. Clinicians and investigators must have completed their residency or post-doctoral training no more than five years prior to applying. Applications coming from the entire European area will be accepted.
The recipient will receive € 2.500. This award will be made available to the individual applicant and must be used for direct expenses. A progress report will be required. Applicants can provide a paper, also after presentation at a specific meeting and the candidate chosen can use the money in the next year. The Eurotransplant International Foundation will retain the right to unilaterally cancel any awards for non-compliance or non-performance.

the publication on which the application is based
for which purpose he/she will use the award with a short description of the research project (limited to three pages);
A list of publications abstracts and previous research in the field of transplantation (limited to two pages);
Applications must also contain a letter of nomination from a faculty sponsor who will accept responsibility for monitoring the awardee;
