  • The project group must consist of
    • at least 2 participating institutions from different countries
    • principal investigators from each institute who are responsible for the implementation of this project on behalf of their participating institutions
    • a project coordinator (this may or may not be one of the principal investigators), who has been identified by the participating institutions for coordinating the overall project.
  • All project group applicants (i.e. project coordinator and principal investigators of all participating institutions) need to be ECCO Members at the time of application.
  • The majority of the ECCO Pioneer Award applicants must be from an ECCO Country Member; all applications that include non-European participating institutions must justify the selection of these institutions in the letter of intent.

  • It is essential to illustrate the overall impact of the project for the IBD Community.
  • Each project coordinator and the corresponding lead institution may only submit one proposal by the official submission date.
