The next round of bursary applications is now open.

The 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.

Please note: closing date for applications is 31st December 2020

The two successful applicants from the previous bursary call were:-

  • Guido Primiano from Fondazione Policlinico Universitario A Gemelli IRCCS in Rome who wants to attend the EUROMIT conference in Newcastle in June 2020.
  • Daniel Natera de Benito from Hospital Sant Joan de Déu in Barcelona who wants to attend ICNMD in Valencia in July 2020.

We look forward to finding out how about their bursaries helped further their knowledge and understanding of neuromuscular diseases.
