Background of the “Nursing Research Project Plan Competition”

From the Milan meeting (2008) onward, the EAUN is looking to support your nursing research project. A jury will select 6 nominees. All the projects of the nominees will be discussed in a scientific session, thus creating the possibility for all participants to learn from other projects, through feedback and discussions. The winner will be chosen by the jury after the session and will receive € 2,500 to start his or her research project.

Do you have an idea for a project that will…

  • Improve the quality of your daily work in urology care
  • Turn a new or unique aspect of nursing care into a research project
  • Evaluate developments which have taken place in your urological field
  • Turn practical clinical issues in nursing into a research project to help resolve them
  • Or do you have a small practical project which you would like to develop into a research project

… then we invite you to submit a research project proposal for the EAUN Nursing Research Competition.

The prize for a the Best EAUN Nursing Research Project is € 2,500.

We hope that many of you will use the opportunity the EAUN presents to you. Remember, small research can change the urological nursing world!

  • Only registered nurses can submit a research project
