IUR Young Investigator’s Award


To encourage young scientists to participate in the conference, IUR is sponsoring a young investigators award program, first established since 2005 and deployed again in association with the ICRER 2017 conference. Four 1500 Euros travel awards and a diploma will be granted to selected young investigators submitting high quality manuscripts. In order to be considered, all candidates must:

  • Provide documentation that they are either currently enrolled as a student, or have completed their PhD within the last five years.
  • Submit a senior-authored manuscript for consideration (following the JER format standards for potential further consideration in view of publication).
  • The manuscript must be received by 1st June 2017 (sent by email to the IUR General Secretary: francois.brechignac@irsn.fr).


Selection will be based on scientific quality of the manuscript. Each manuscript will be evaluated according to the following criteria:

  • The paper advances the state of knowledge in an area of science promoted at the conference.
  • The research idea is innovative and has interdisciplinary implications.
  • The study design is of high quality.
  • The discussions section is clear.
  • The conclusions are well supported by the data presented.
