The nominations for Edogawa NICHE prize every year could be made through the relevant links in the website.
While anyone can make a nomination, the Fujio Cup Quiz (FCQ) Elites since 2006 will have a priority channel for nomination.
As the prize is to honour a contribution through "inter-disciplinary" work, the FCQ Elites, who have walked through the portals of the Active Knowledge Gaining (AKG) event of FCQ, which has brought together an international multi-disciplinary team and have attained great heights when young, we do hope are the right referees to nominate the candidates with priority as the future is theirs.
The Fujio Cup Quiz (FCQ) (www.fujiocupquiz.org) is an Active Knowledge Gaining (AKG) International Quiz on Stem Cells & Regenerative Medicine being held as part of the NCRM NICHE, an anniversary commemorative event of Nichi-In Centre for Regenerative Medicine (NCRM). The NCRM NICHE with the FCQ was started in 2006 and has witnessed 12 Editions till date. The FCQ is open to scholars from Life Sciences, Biotechnology, Veterinary Science, Dentistry and Medicine from all over the world. The FCQ was held in India till 2016 and the 12th Edition was held in Tokyo, Japan in 2017.
The Fujio Cup Quiz (FCQ) Elites consists of the crème de la crème of the scholars from Life Sciences, Biotechnology, Veterinary Science, Dentistry and Medicine from all over the world selected through a meticulous process of objective assessment through online assessments and assignments on Regenerative Medicine and its allied fields. These FCQ Elites selected during a particular year compete for the FCQ Trophy in the final event held during the NCRM NICHE in the October of that year. These FCQ Elites from 2006-2017 have later been scholars of Prestigious Institutes of the world, whose work is to significantly contribute to science in the future. Hence, we feel they should form the core of the nominators for the EDOGAWA-NICHE PRIZE.
Non-FCQ Elite individuals can also nominate nominees for the EDOGAWA-NICHE PRIZE using relevant channels which will be open in due course for the Edogawa Niche Prize 2019
