EURO-NMD Bursaries

To ensure equity of care for patients with rare neuromuscular diseases across Europe, the ERN EURO-NMD is strongly committee to boost Training and Continuous Education Programmes.

Our bursary scheme is open to young researchers/doctors under the age of 40 years old that belong to one of the EURO-NMD healthcare providers.

Due to the COVID19 pandemic and widespread travel disruption this round of bursaries will still adhere to our commitment to education and training but will shift focus slightly.

Instead of assisting with travel we are asking applicants to tell us about a specific book, journal subscription or registration fees for an online meeting that they think would particularly beneficial to them and their career at this time.
