You may apply for an ESCMID research grant until tomorrow!

The application period for next year’s ESCMID research grants runs until tomorrow, 7 October 2015, at noon CET. In addition to the regular grants worth EUR 20,000, ESCMID has reserved up to EUR 50,000 each for two excellently rated projects, where the reviewers see a great potential and are of the opinion that they merit additional funds to take the topic further. Please note that the application criteria and the related information have changed. In even years (2016) only projects dealing with bacterial infections are accepted, increasing the chances of the individual projects. In uneven years the focus is on fungal, viral and parasitic infections and diseases.
