The ECNP Regional Poster Award was founded at the 5th ECNP Regional Meeting in St. Petersburg, 2000, to enable promising researchers to attend the ECNP Congress.
The award was presented to the two most outstanding posters by scientists from the country in which the ECNP Regional Meeting takes place – one participant involved in clinical research and one in pre-clinical research, both in the field of neuropsychopharmacology.
Selection was made by a scientific jury during the meeting. Their choice depended upon scientific excellence of the paper and on the presentation of the scientific information on the poster.
The award consisted of a commemorative certificate, free registration fee for the upcoming ECNP Congress and a EUR 500 contribution towards travel and accommodation costs.
