The Federation of European Societies of Plant Biology (FESPB) is proud for the FESPB Awards, which are awarded at its bi-annual FESPB Congress to two young scientists under the age of 35, for excellence in their scientific achievements. They are the Federation’s most prestigious awards.

Eligible for application are all young Plant Biologists from all European Countries under the age of 35 at the start of the FESPB2008 Congress. All applications from each country will be evaluated by the respective constituent Society and the best candidate (one per country) will be sent to the Chairperson of Grants & Awards Committee, Prof. Christine Foyer. Thus, each National Representative from each Country is asked to propose one candidate for the 2012 Awards.

Beginning in 2010, the FESPB Executive Committee has unanimously decided to also accept Applications directly from individual FESPB Members, once their Application is accompanied by a Recommendation Letter from a FESPB senior Member.

The FESPB Grants & Awards Committee will then evaluate all applications and will select the two FESPB Award winners, who must be under the age of 35, at the start of the Congress.

Applications (Nomination Forms , Recommendation Letter and Curriculum Vitae) must be sent electronically, or by regular mail or courrier before 31 January 2012 to the Chair of Grants and Awards Committee, Prof. Christine Foyer, at the following address:
