Travel bursaries for 2020

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.

EURO-NMD is delighted to invite applications for the EURO-NMD bursary scheme, for late 2020; eligible persons are invited to apply for this program as soon as possible, (latest May 30th 2020).

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.

For this round we have put in place two grants of 500 € each to attend a scientific meeting in the neuromuscular field.

  • You are a young research/clinician working in the field of rare neuromuscular diseases
  • You are under 40 years of age
  • The scientific meeting you choose to attend must be in the field of neuromuscular diseases
  • We will take in to consideration all applications, but candidates from European ITC countries will be favoured as well as those who would present a poster or deliver a presentation at the meeting they wish to attend
  • You will have to send a short CV, as well as a letter explaining why you wish to attend the meeting
  • Please apply using the form at the bottom of this page by May 30th 2020
