  • Provide a letter of permission from the Head of Department of the hosting centre.
  • The candidate and the host have to be members at the different societies (ECCO & AOCC, respectively) at the time of application. E.g., a European ECCO Member can apply to visit an Asian institute under host supervision of an AOCC Member and vice versa:
    ➔ Award no 1: AOCC Member candidate goes to ECCO Member centre in Europe
    ➔ Award no 2: ECCO Member candidate goes to AOCC Member centre in Asia
  • State the scientific purpose for travelling to the selected hosting centre. If a scientific project is attached to the application, it makes it more likely that this application is scored higher than others, but it is not essential.
