The Helmholtz Young Investigator in Diabetes (HeIDi) award recognizes the outstanding achievements of two young scientists - rising stars. Each plenary speaker nominates one young scientist for the HeIDi award. A special award committee finally selects two award winners amongst all HeIDi Nominees after they have given their lecture (the lectures are part of the scientific program of the conference).
