Purpose

ESCMID Young Scientist members (35 years-of-age or younger), who wish to attend the 32nd ECCMID in Lisbon, may apply for support. Abstracts are evaluated by blind review and on this basis, up to 100 abstracts with the highest scores are offered free registration.

Funding

A travel grant will include full registration to the congress and a travel allowance amounting to EUR 500 (paid in cash onsite against presentation of an identity card or passport).
