The 25th edition of the prestigious Syva Award is launched! We look forward to receiving your applications!

This year, the Syva Award will be held for the 25th time since its creation. This edition is particular in many ways.

Indeed, it has been 25 years since this great initiative, this exciting scientific adventure, began. 25 years since Syva, beyond her mission during 80 years of existence, committed to strengthening her commitment to science, research and development by supporting young scientists who dedicate themselves to a career serving the cause of animal health and welfare.

This year is also particular because as we enter 2022, we are progressively entering the third year of the Covid-19 pandemic, and animal health expert scientists have proven to be essential in managing this unprecedented health crisis.

Particular, because last year, this prize was awarded to the young researcher Alejandro Pascual Iglesias for his thesis over swine coronavirus, and highlighted the brilliant work done by the prestigious CSIC team to help manage the health crisis. Demonstrating how all the work of the teams of researchers involved in basic and applied research in animal health can provide concrete solutions to a public health problem. Together they demonstrated the importance of animal health as part of this OneHealth concept. .

The candidates applying for the Syva Award enter this call after completing their doctoral studies, having taken their first steps in the world of research. The Syva Award aims to support the research careers of these young people at a key moment in their professional lives.

The year 2022 is therefore a key year for Syva, which is once again preparing to value the work of a scientific team through the thesis of a young researcher in the twenty-fifth edition of the Syva Award.

And why shouldn’t you, as a young researcher, with your thesis, your university, your work, and that of the researchers’ teams in your institution win this prestigious Syva prize and benefit from its notoriety and its 15.000 euros prize?

We also invite all university networks, deans and rectors and their research project leaders to encourage and support the application and work of their doctoral students by sharing the information and documents we have sent or to share this information and the link below with all their teams.
