Euro Ewing Consortium

International Clinical Trials to Improve Survival from Ewing Sarcoma

Young Researcher travel awards - deadline 16 September 2018

The EURO EWING Consortium (EEC) is launching a call for applications from junior researchers to attend and present at the next EEC meeting. This will be held in central London on 11-12 December 2018. The call is open to junior scientific and clinical researchers (i.e. not holding substantive career posts) working in Europe on Ewing sarcoma at both EEC Partner and non-EEC Partner organisations. Funding has been generously provided by the Peter Pan Onlus charity in Italy

The EEC will not be able to accept applications from researchers that have previously given spoken presentations at EEC meetings.

In return for the opportunity to give a ten-minute presentation on their research, successful applicants will receive expenses for travel, hotel accommodation and subsistence to a maximum of €500.

The deadline for applications is Sunday 16 September 2018.

Applications will be reviewed by the work package leaders of the EEC and successful applicants will be informed by the end of October 2018. Applicants should send completed forms to Abigail Evans at eec@ucl.ac.uk.

Within two weeks after the meeting, the recipients of the travel grant will be required to return a summary of how attendance at the meeting has been of benefit to them. This will be posted on the EEC website and sent to the Peter Pan Onlus charity.
