Awards of Egon and Ann Diczfalusy Foundation

Diczfalusy Award Lecture (DAL)

The aim of the “Egon & Ann Diczfalusy Foundation” is to support research in reproductive health, provide updated knowledge to Obstetricians-Gynaecologists and strengthen collaboration and friendship between clinicians and researchers in the Central-European Region.

It also supports the training of physicians and healthcare workers by organising scientific events, and helps young professionals to meet and gain knowledge from their most experienced colleagues.

To foster its aims, every year the Foundation organises an Annual Meeting with a Diczfalusy Award Lecture (DAL) Symposium on Reproductive Health. Besides a high-level scientific program with the best speakers and international participation at these meeting two prizes are handed over.

The Foundation grants yearly awards to encourage young research fellows doing research in the female healthcare arena and also a lifetime award for senior researchers from all over the world for their lifetime achievements on the field.

Young Scientist Award

The Diczfalusy Foundation's call for the 2024 Young Researcher Award. 

In line with tradition, the Diczfalusy Foundation will award a Young Researcher Prize (“Young Scientist Award” ) to a deserving candidate. The prize will be awarded at the Foundation's 2024 Symposium (DAL16, 19-21 September 2024), where the winner will present the most important scientific achievements of his/her application. The award will be presented to a clinician or researcher with a significant research record in the field of reproductive health who is under 40 years of age at the time of the conference (born before 19 September 1984). The recipient will receive a certificate of honour and a bronze commemorative plaque reflecting Professor Diczfalusy's commitment to his Alma Mater and his medical humanism.
The Board of Trustees of the Diczfalusy Foundation invites applications from young researchers until 15 July 2024. The applications will be evaluated by invited reviewers and the Board of Trustees will decide on the award on the basis of the evaluation. Applications should include a maximum two-page application reflecting the applicant's key scientific findings, a scientific biography and a list of the top 10 publications. The application must be submitted in English in electronic format (pdf) to the following address:


The Prize consists of a bronze medal and is granted annually to an internationally acknowledged young investigator, for her/his achievements in improving Reproductive Health.
