Every year, in spring and autumn, EULAR awards training grants to applicants from European countries for clinical or laboratory work (1-3 weeks) in a unit of another European country. The objective is to improve the standard of research and care and to foster collaboration across rheumatologic, clinical and research units in Europe.
The amount of the grant depends of the length of stay:
- 1 week = 850 EUR (600 [Travel] + 250 [Accommodation assistance])
- 2 weeks = 1100 EUR (600 [Travel] + 500 [Accommodation assistance])
- 3 weeks = 1350 EUR (600 [Travel] + 750 [Accommodation assistance])
For one month, please refer to our long-term scientific training grant:
- Curriculum vitae with date of birth and list of publications (if any)
- Outline of the clinical or laboratory project to be undertaken (maximum 4 pages including references)
- Written confirmation of acceptance from the host hospital or research institute (signed by the Head of Department), indicating the tentative time frame of the training period
- Application form
- The age of the candidate should not exceed 40 years
Please note that only persons who work predominantly in the field of rheumatology are eligible for training bursaries. Grants will not be made if the applicant is already abroad in training.
