Application Deadline: 1 August 2022.
The European Society for Paediatric Research (ESPR) launched a large-scale research grant programme in 2017. Scheduled to run for six years (2017-2022), the society makes available new calls on an annual basis.
All grants have in common that they require ESPR membership, with the exception of the ESPR Young Investigator START-UP GRANTS and the ESPR Nursing GRANTS, where only the applicant’s supervisor/host or secondary supervisor must be affiliated with the society. Thus, we would like to encourage you to present your data at one of the next ESPR conferences, sign up for ESPR membership and become eligible to apply for a grant of your choice.
At the time of submission, applicants must:
- be within 10 years of having received a degree in their undergraduate qualification in biomedical sciences/medicine/life sciences. Extensions are possible in case of parental leave or serious illness;
- be ESPR members or intending to join the society, supported by their supervisors/hosts, of whom at least one should be an ESPR member*;
- be willing to present their research findings at a future ESPR conference.
*The primary supervisor should be from the applicant’s institution. In case he/she is not an ESPR member, a secondary supervisor who is an ESPR member may support the project. Should you not fulfil this requirement, please contact the ESPR office. We will assist you in identifying a secondary supervisor that is part of the society.
: EUR 10,000 per grant
