Objectives and principles
The objective of the Mobility Travel Grant (MTG) is to strengthen relations between Research Institutions of different European countries. For this, a €2,500 grant will be attributed to selected applicants of the ESC Working Group on Myocardial & Pericardial Diseases to cover travelling and accommodation costs to work for a minimum period of one month.
For 2021, and exceptionally, grant applications can be submitted based on a national exchange, where international exchange is not possible due to pandemic mobility restrictions.
Candidates must be active in the area of cardiovascular sciences either in the experimental or clinical field.
At the time of the application deadline, candidates must not be older than 40 years old and must be accepted members of WG on Myocardial & Pericardial Diseases. Previous MTG recipients are not eligible.
Candidates should move into a host laboratory different from their current laboratory. Current Institution and host Institution must be located in ESC Member Countries.
