Call for Nominations

The most important body of our society is the Executive Board, and we encourage you to contribute to shaping its future composition through the nomination of candidates for the position of President Elect. We also encourage proposals for Fellows and Honorary Members of our Society.

As the Chairperson of the Nomination and Awards Committee 2023-2024, it is my pleasure to invite you to propose potential candidates for:

Executive Board Elections:

  • President Elect

As a member of our Society, you are entitled to propose nominees for this position. Please note that according to our guidelines, the nominees with the highest number of proposals, who fulfil the requirements, will be considered by the Committee. This year the position will be assigned to a non-clinician.

The Nomination and Awards Committee will compile the final list of nominees for the election and, upon approval by the Executive Board, will provide all members with voting rights through a link to the electronic voting tool. The election period is expected to start in March 2024.


Fellowship and Honorary Membership Awards:

Each year the ESMRMB can award Fellowships of our Society. Candidates for this award should have made important contributions to our society and/or to their scientific field of interest. Honorary Memberships are awarded more rarely (not every year) at the discretion of the Nominations and Awards Committee and Executive Board. Candidates who have made outstanding contributions to research fields within the scope of our Society will be considered. A list of the Society’s Fellows and Honorary Members can be found on the ESMRMB website at

The awards will be presented during the 40th Annual Scientific Meeting, which takes place October 2-5, 2024, in Barcelona, Spain. Having collected proposals from the membership, the Nomination and Awards Committee will present its nominations to the Executive Board, which will then make the final decision.


All proposals (for President Elect, Fellows and Honorary Members) must be accompanied by a short motivation statement. This nomination letter should not exceed 400 words.

Please send your proposals for all nominations to the ESMRMB Office via email to no later than Thursday, January 25, 2024.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the ESMRMB Office.

I look forward to receiving your proposals and thank you in advance for your active participation.

I wish you a Happy Holiday Season, a few relaxing days, and best wishes for the New Year!

Best regards,
Benedikt Poser
Chair of the Nominations and Awards Committee
