Transatlantic Alliance Award

April 26, 2021


The European Society of Endocrinology and the Endocrine Society are delighted to announce a joint new initiative, The Transatlantic Alliance Award.

The Transatlantic Alliance Award will be presented to a recognized international leader who has made significant advancements in endocrinology research through work and collaboration in both the US and Europe. It is open to researchers across the basic and clinical spectra.

The Award consists of a medal and a financial reward which will normally either be presented at the European Congress of Endocrinology (ECE) or the Endocrine Society annual meeting (ENDO), where the awardee will present one of the main lectures. The Award lecture at the respective meeting will take place on alternate years. However, both Societies may invite the winner to speak at its annual meeting.

The financial reward is €5000 ($5,889) and will be presented at ECE 2022 (21-24 May 2022, Milan, Italy).


Nominations can be made by individuals or any scientific organization or administrative group. Self-nominations will be allowed if supported by two members of either ESE or ES. Nominees should be a member of at least one of the Societies.

For ESE: Members of the ESE Executive Committee and the ECE Program Organizing Committee are not eligible for one year after their term of office ends. ESE Committee Chairs and Focus Area Leads are not eligible whilst in office.

For ES: Members of the ES Executive Committee and Annual Meeting Steering Committee are not eligible for this award for one year after their term of office ends. ES committee chairs are not eligible whilst in office. Nominations should include:

  • Letter of support (no longer than two pages)
  • Curriculum Vitae 
  • List of most relevant research/publications of the candidate

Nominations for the 2023 ES-ESE Transatlantic Alliance Award will open November/December 2021.


The jury is composed of the current President, President-Elect, and immediate Past-President of both Societies. The jury may invite one more persons on an ad-hoc basis to ensure coverage of clinical and basic science. The jury will ensure parity between European and US nominations.

The co-Chairs of the jury will be the current President of both Societies.
