1st edition of João Monjardino Award 2021


The deadline for submitting applications to the 1st edition of the João Monjardino Prize 2021 has been extended until 5 pm on October 12, 2021. The Call is promoted by FCT and Fundação Francisco Pulido Valente (FFPV).

The prize, worth 10,000 EUR (ten thousand euros), has the theme "Doctor-Patient Relationship: personalized medicine and/or narrative medicine?" and seeks to distinguish the best published article, with no restrictions on the year of publication, and which describes the results of research carried out by a researcher under 35 years of age at the date of submission of the application, in an institution of the national scientific and technological system.

In March this year, the FCT and the FFPV renewed the partnership protocol with a view to launching this new João Monjardino Prize 2021, which will replace the Pulido Valente Science Prize and which had its last edition in 2020.

In this way, both Foundations seek to continue supporting research and development activities in the area of Biomedical and Health Sciences, contributing to the encouragement and progress of knowledge in themes essential to improving health conditions and increasing the quality of human life.
