ADHD World Federation - Modernising the concept of ADHD
Early Career Scientist Awards

The Joseph Biederman, MD and Eric Taylor, MD
Early Career Scientist Awards

The World Federation of ADHD would especially like to encourage young scientists to attend the 10th World Congress on ADHD. 

The World Congress Programme will include two symposia dedicated to Early Career Scientists (ECRs) selected from submitted abstracts. Awardees will receive a monetary grant worth EUR 500. The Congress will have two ECR  symposia, each comprising four 20-minute lectures and chaired by recognized experts for the featured topic. One symposium is held in honor of Eric Taylor, MD. The second is held in honor of Joseph Biederman MD. Among high quality ECR abstracts, preference will be given to topics that are in the tradition of these two pioneers in ADHD research, both of whom were awarded the World Federation of ADHD’s Heinrich Hoffman Medal.
