Ok, got it
The European Society of Cardiology (ESC) supports the future of cardiovascular medicine. Each year the ESC provides €2 million in grants, fellowships, and scholarships.
Nursing Training grants of 25,000 Euros to enable cardiovascular nurses to train in an ESC Member Country centre of excellence. The grant is meant to cover living costs during the time of training.
The goal of this award is to help candidates attain clinical and academic competence and acquire experience of high quality in cardiac nursing practice which will enable them to contribute to the improvement of academic standards upon return to their own country.
This is an excellent opportunity to improve and broaden one’s skills, horizons and network with colleagues and experts outside one’s own country.
Training may be undertaken for any period from three months to one year.
Nursing Training Grant recipients will receive a lump sum, up to a maximum of 25,000 Euros for a 12 month period for their daily subsistence. The granted amount will be calculated pro-rata, according to the length of the Training period.
Proposals may be submitted for specialised training or further training in the subject relevant to a particular clinical interest.
Applicants are advised to seek out a centre in another ESC Member Country which not only offers good training opportunities but is also appropriate for the particular field in which they wish to train.
The host institution track records or expertise should be in line with the topic of the application (treatment, techniques, methods etc.).
