Honoring the Best Medical Achievements of Central and Eastern Europe.

International Medis Awards for Medical Research

As part of its social responsibility program, for the eighth consecutive year, Medis is sponsoring the International Medis Awards for Medical Research, a competition in which an international panel of experts selects the best applied research achievements in selected areas of medicine.

By recognizing and honoring selected works, Medis raises awareness and promotes the importance of research in the development of medical science in the CEE region, valuably contributing to disease diagnosis and treatment.

FIELDS: Gastroenterology, Gynecology, Intensive Care Medicine and Anesthesiology, Neurology, Ophthalmology, Pediatrics, Pharmacy, Pulmonology and Allergology, Rheumatology

Last year’s finalist are presented in a unique Pledge to Science documentary film featuring more than 40 of the world's greatest medical and pharmaceutical experts, as well as exclusive stories from patients.

Most of these projects have been applied in selected areas of medicine and the changes brought by them are generally small because there have not been many epochal changes in medicine in recent years. However, these small research achievements are gradually coming into clinical practice in terms of treatment and, of course, diagnostics. Prof. Matija Tomšič, MD, PhD the President of the international expert panel

Pledged to Science: Finalists of the International Medis Awards 2020

The pledge to science is not a momentary inspiration, but the relationship towards work and life in general. Researchers are those individuals who move the wheels of history and are the bearers of changes and a promise of hope. 

Pledge to Science was therefore a perfect title for our unique documentary film in which we presented the finalists of the International Medis Awards 2020.
