Outstanding opportunities for young cardiologists to train in a European centre of excellence.
The European Society of Cardiology (ESC) supports the future of cardiovascular medicine. Each year the ESC provides €2 million in grants, fellowships, and scholarships.
Research grants of 25,000 Euros to provide an opportunity for medical graduates and researchers to undertake specialised cardiovascular research, in an ESC Member Country centre of excellence. The goal of this award is to help young candidates to obtain research experience in a high standard academic centre which will enable them to contribute to the improvement of academic standards upon return to their own country. With this goal in mind, preference is given to applicants from countries or regions where modern Clinical Cardiology is not yet strong, provided that there is enough evidence that the applicants can, after the research period, contribute to the improvement of Clinical Cardiology upon return to their home country.
It is also an opportunity to learn and to improve skills to carry back home and a great occasion to develop one’s own international and professional network.
Research periods related to the ESC grant may be undertaken for any period from three months to one year.
Research Grants 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 research period.
Proposals may be submitted for specialised research or further research training or, in the case of medical graduates, for training in a basic subject.
Applicants are advised to seek a centre in another ESC Member Country than the country of their current residence. The centre should not only offer good research and training opportunities but should also be appropriate for the specific research they wish to undertake.
The host institution track records or expertise should be in line with the topic of the application (treatment, techniques, methods ….).
The application is to be performed online.
The following templates are required to be completed and uploaded with the application:
Applications will be graded by the ESC Grant Committee, from 1 to 5, on the following 5 criteria, and applicants should consider them carefully when completing the forms:

Applications submitted after the annual deadline will not be considered by the ESC Grants Committee. The candidates will be informed by email about the results by the end of March.
