Thanks to a joint effort of the New Initiatives For Young Interventionalists Committee chaired by Gabor Toth and the Fellowship Committee of the EAPCI chaired by Martine Gilard, we are pleased to announce a novel grant platform - called the Micro-Fellowship Standards programme.
Deadline to apply: 7 March
The Micro-Fellowship Standards programme supplements the regular long-term Education and Training grants programme fellowships. It offers a short (4 weeks) but intensive stay in one carefully selected centre of excellence in a given technology among:
The programme is dedicated specifically to interventionists having completed their fellowship and at the early stages of their learning curve in one of the targeted procedures. (No age limit)In addition, applicants eligible for this programme are those who meet all the below requirements:

Applicants are requested to identify a centre which is a centre of excellence in the given technology which they have selected. In addition, as part of the application process, they are strongly recommended to approach them to secure their training period, if selected.
Requirements for centres are available here
Its goal is to boost the candidates’ exposure to the selected procedure over a period of 4 weeks. Even if this will be observational, it will provide a good kick-start to the programme in their home institution. This latter possibility is even supported – as an option – with a few days visit by a proctor, also covered by the grant. There is no need to add that the networking potential of this programme is massive.
Application form for candidates
This programme is subject to the industry support at national level: more information on the name and country of the subscribers will be provided in due course. Discussions are currently on-going between industry partners and EAPCI.
