Comenius Early Career award 2017 winner: Dr. David Daniel Ebert, Germany

29 Mar 2017

The Executive Council of EFPA would like to congratulate Dr. Ebert from the Friedrich-Alexander University Erlangen-Nürnberg, Germany for being elected to be the next EFPA Comenius Early Career award 2017 winner.

The Comenius Early Career Psychologist Award was given to EFPA by the Union of Psychologists’ Associations of the Czech Republic (UPA CR) in 2007, to be awarded to a young psychologist from Europe who has made an original contribution to psychology as a science and profession.

The Comenius Selection Committee stated that: 

The work of Dr. Ebert is at the forefront of the studies on the development of internet mobile-based behavioural health interventions.
Dr. Ebert has developed twelve mobile and internet interventions in areas such as depression, chronic pain, diabetes, stress, or insomnia.
As a young researcher, he has already started 25 randomized control studies and published more than 80 articles and 22 book chapters.
He has also demonstrated a strong interest in the implementation of the results of research in health settings, having worked with insurance companies in order for them to adopt the applications in routine health care.
His capacity to attract funding and create teams that explore some of the most up to date interventions in psychology show a remarkable contribution early in his career, that offer the prospect of many relevant contributions to come.
