The European Union Hearing Aid Acousticians (EUHA) is inviting students to apply for the 2024 EUHA Sponsorship Award to encourage young talent in the industry and help raise awareness for their work.

What is the EUHA Sponsorship Award?

The 2024 award competition is intended for students at a university of applied sciences or university who have completed their studies within the past 24 months. They may submit a diploma, bachelor’s, master’s, or doctoral thesis. The thesis must not be protected by a confidentiality clause.

The thesis should deal with a topic concerning the rehabilitation of deficiencies affecting the auditory communication system and should exhibit potential for development. Another requirement is that the subject matter can be practically applied by members of the trade of hearing aid acousticians.

The 2024 Sponsorship Award, which was launched by the EUHA in 2010, will be presented at the 68th International Congress of Hearing Aid Acousticians in Hanover on Oct. 16, 2024. The younger hearing aid acousticians can look forward to prize monies of 3,000 euros for the first prize, 2,000 euros for the second prize, and 1,000 euros for the third prize.

The EUHA is a platform designed for generating added value from sharing knowledge and transferring insights from current research, says the EUHA. The award gives young scientists a chance to share their findings and present them to a broad audience.
“Use this opportunity to introduce yourself to the industry and present the results of your current research,” says EUHA Vice President Eva Keil-Becker, who is the chairwoman of the sponsorship award jury. “The Congress is an ideal platform to reach an international audience.”
