just a brief reminder of the approaching deadline of December 31st, 2014, for individual applications for the ACTERIA Prizes Awarded by EFIS in Immunology and Allergology.
Also, please recall that EFIS will look forward to receiving from National Societies the details (names and e-mail addresses) of the committees/panels set up to review and evaluate applications submitted by their respective members. These individuals will be granted access (by January 15th, 2015) to the online application submission system, which is structured so that each National Society has its own repository containing only the applications of its members. National Societies will then have until March 15th, 2015 to assess applications and to submit the nomination of their (maximum) 4 candidates (one for each prize).
Two more important notes:
1) the EFIS Board has recently instituted a new funding scheme for PhD courses/events/retreats organized under the auspices of EFIS-affliated Societies with fewer that 500 members. For full details, please consult the EFIS website.
2) on behalf of our Austrian Colleagues, please also remember (for those who have not yet done so) to post the logo and link for ECI 2015 on your Society’s homepage.
More news will be following soon in the new year from EFIS President, Prof. Lorenzo Moretta, particularly as this regards the full slate of commitments that the next 10 months hold in store: the Day of Immunology 2015 (April 29, 2015), nominations for the Ita Askonas Award, nominations for EFIS Board offices of President-elect, Secretary General and Treasurer, and bids to host ECI 2021.
Until then, our warmest wishes for happy and healthy holiday season!
