Detall de la convocatòria


Objectiu de la convocatòria
ERS is the leading professional organisation in its field in Europe. It is broad-based, with some 10,000 members and counting in over 100 countries. Its scope covers both basic science and clinical medicine. ERS seeks to alleviate suffering from respiratory disease and promote lung health through research, sharing of knowledge and through medical and public education.
Característiques principals
Research Training Fellowships are established to enable young scientists and clinicians in the early-stages of their research career in respiratory medicine to visit a Host Unit in a (European) country other than the candidate's own, with the aim of learning a research technique not available in the Home Unit. The research training should benefit the Home Unit when the applicant returns there, by leading to research developments and activities back onsite.
