Roland R. Wauer Award 2023

Application deadline is February 15th, 2023

The 'Roland R. Wauer Award' is dedicated to Professor Dr med Roland R. Wauer - Neonatologist, scientist, teacher and visionary.

By launching the third round of the Roland R. Wauer Award, the ESPR and the Deutsche Stiftung Kranke Neugeborene (DSKN) seek to contribute towards achieving cutting-edge medical care for premature and sick newborns in the future by fostering the clinical and scientific exchange of medical students and junior trainees in the field of Neonatology.

The 'Roland R. Wauer Award' enables medical students to spend 1-2 months in a neonatal clinic in Europe that excels in clinical care and strong research:

  • When: The stay at the clinical institution should take place in summer/autumn 2023. The exact dates can be agreed individually.
  • How: It is expected that the awardees identify, contact and organise their stays with the institutions themselves.
  • Financial support: The ESPR and the DSKN support the grant recipient's stays abroad with EUR 1500 each, which will be used for travel and accommodation costs.
  • Project monitoring: The grant recipients document their stays by keeping a virtual diary or blog. They are responsible for the logistical part of the stay and must organise travel, accommodation and, if necessary, visas independently.
  • Stay at the institution: The fellows have the opportunity to observe the clinical routines of a Neonatology ward in a perinatal centre. The learning objectives and activities can be defined together with the local supervisor according to the level of training and previous knowledge. The ESPR and DSKN deliberately do not set a framework, but encourage the grant recipients to implement their individual ideas during the stay.
  • Application deadline: 15th February 2023.
