Poster Award

Poster Award

As part of the zoonoses platform's promotion of young scientists, the three best posters submitted by young scientists will be selected at the annual International Symposium on Zoonoses Research. 

All topics will be considered. All participants of the respective symposium are entitled to vote.

Poster Award 2020

The Poster Award 2020 was again awarded by all participants of the symposium. A special feature this year: since the symposium was held online due to the coronavirus pandemic, voting was also conducted online for the first time. Participants were able to view the posters to be evaluated in a virtual poster exhibition. In addition, the young scientists presented their work for the first time in a poster slam. Here, everyone had 1 minute to convince the audience of their own work. The results were inspiring and would certainly have justified prizes for numerous contributions. But only the first three places could be awarded. We congratulate the winners very sincerely.
