Objectiu de la convocatòria
Research grants of 25,000 Euros to provide an opportunity for medical graduates and researchers to undertake specialised cardiovascular research, in an ESC Member Country centre of excellence.
Característiques principals
The goal of this award is to help young candidates to obtain research experience in a high standard academic centre which will enable them contribute to the improvement of academic standards upon return to their own country. With this goal in mind, preference is given to applicants from countries or regions where modern Clinical Cardiology is not yet strong, provided that there is enough evidence that the applicants can, after the research period, contribute to the improvement of Clinical Cardiology upon return to their home country.
