Awards

Every year the EAU hands out a number of prestigious awards to recognise and celebrate dedication and innovation in urological research and practice.

Traditionally handed out at the Annual EAU Congress, the awards are a vital acknowledgement of the fact that the international urological community is progressive and continues to push the limits of what is known to mankind today. Also this year the awards will be handed out during the 32nd Annual EAU Congress in London. The award winners will also be recognised in the EAU Award Gallery and the programme book.
