Scientific Awards

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).
