Before the annual ESPR conference six young investigators are nominated for the prize. All submitted abstracts are scored by at least three reviewers. The 20 highest scoring abstracts submitted by young investigators are re-scored by the ESPR council and the nominees are chosen after discussion by the council during the conference planning meeting.
At the conference the nominees present their work as a standard oral presentation in the special young investigator prize session. The ESPR council re-score on basis of the scientific content (credibility, paediatric relevance, and novelty), as well as the presentation and the interaction during the discussion time.
