ESPID Annual Meeting Travel Award 2015

Under the authority of the Committee for Scientific Affairs and Awards

+ AIMS (click to open/close)

Each year ESPID makes a number of awards towards the cost of travel to and registration fees for the annual meeting. The travel awards will be up to a maximum of Euro 1 000 each for economy class air travel, airport connection fares and early registration fees.

+ ELIGIBILITY CRITERIA (click to open/close)

The following criteria are considered in awarding applicants for travel awards:

  • Applicants must be less than 40 years old on the day of the deadline
  • Applicants for whom alternative sources of funding may be fewer
  • Applicants who have not previously received ESPID travel awards
  • Applicants who are presenting papers or posters at the meeting *
  • Applicants from countries in which funding is likely to be limited
  • Applicants from countries far away from the meeting venue
  • Normally, each year awards are limited to one per country when the number of applicants is higher than the number of awards

Applicants should be "good standing" members of ESPID (click here to download the ESPID "good standing" member criteria) and membership fees paid up by the deadline of 1 December 2014 if they wish to be considered for this award.

* The abstract submission deadline is 14 January 2015, but if you have submitted an abstract before the travel award deadline of 1 December 2014, it would greatly increase your chance of receiving an award.

Applicants should send the information below to the ESPID secretariat at espid@kenes.ch using the subject title “ESPID Annual Meeting Travel Award 2014”. Applicants without access to email may send applications by fax to +31 20 763 05 11 or by post to ESPID Secretariat, De Ruyterkade 7, 1013 AA, Amsterdam, The Netherlands.

Deadline for applications: 1 December 2014

Applicants should apply for the early registration rate before 1 December 2014 like all other delegates. (Although if your registration depends upon you securing a travel award, then do not register and an arrangement will be made for you in these circumstances. You will be allowed to pay the lower rate after 1 December if your travel award is successful, provided that you have registered by the end of January 2015, by when the results of the travel award scheme will have been announced).
