The EUHA is asking hearing aid acoustician students to apply for the 2023 Sponsorship Award, with a max prize of €3,000.

The European Union Hearing Aid Acousticians (EUHA) invited students to apply for the 2023 EUHA Sponsorship Award. The award was launched by the EUHA in 2010 to encourage young talent, and help raise awareness of their work.

The 2023 Sponsorship Award will be presented at the 67th International Congress of Hearing Aid Acousticians in Nuremberg on October 18, 2023.

In addition, the next generation of hearing aid acousticians can look forward to prize money of €3,000 for first prize, €2,000 for second prize, and €1,000 for third prize.

“The EUHA is an important platform for increasing knowledge and sharing current research,” said Eva Keil-Becker, EUHA vice president and chairwoman of the sponsorship award jury. “The EUHA Sponsorship Award gives young scientists the opportunity to present their findings to a broad audience.”

The 2023 award competition is intended for students of a university of applied sciences or university who have completed their studies within the past 24 months. They may submit a diploma, bachelor’s, or master’s 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 thesis must be received by no later than August 15, 2023 and must be accompanied by a two-page abstract comprising proposition, method, and result, with a max of 5,000 characters (incl. spaces). A take-home message (central statement put in a nutshell) as well as a curriculum vitae are also required.

An electronic copy of the thesis should be submitted to the EUHA Office, e-mail: [email protected]. It also must be accompanied by the author’s curriculum vitae.
