The Paul Calas prize

The Paul Calas Prize 2022


The Paul Calas Prize has a value of 3000 Euros

The FSE Board of Directors decided, in 2008, to award a Research Prize in tribute to the late Prof. Paul Calas, of the Department of Conservative Dentistry and Endodontics at the Toulouse University of Dentistry, who sadly passed away in June 2007. This Prize will go to promote, support and reward the scientist or research team that presents the most original research paper on their theoretical and clinical studies in Endodontics, which has never previously been submitted for publication. The aim of this Prize is also to share French and International endodontic research with members of the FSE and endodontists worldwide, in order to create new ties and strengthen existing relationships between practitioners and scientists from the whole profession.

This year’s FSE International Congress will be held in Saint-Malo, France on 2022 June 9-10. International jury will assess submissions anonymously. The winner will be informed of the decision in early June 2022. The FSE requests that the winner presents the results of his/her study to the public during the FSE International Meeting. Expenses for accommodation and meeting fees will be covered by the FSE. Expenses for travel will be at the winner’s charge. The winner will receive his/her Prize after the FSE received a proof (receipt) of paper submission to a scientific journal (French or English language) with Editorial Committee.
