The aim of EACPR Research Support Project (RSP) is to provide support through a dedicated network of senior experts to young researchers who encounter difficulties in designing research projects, PhD theses etc. 22 experts in Preventive Cardiology accepted to contribute to the EACPR Research Support Project as mentors to help young scientists with the many questions they face when starting up a research project.
What is the Research Support Project?
Who can benefit from this support?
How does it work?
A young scientist is faced with many questions when starting up a research project:
Here, the Research Support Project (RSP) aims to be at your service at the onset of your research in preventive cardiology.
The support is available for researchers member of the EACPR up to the age of 35 years, especially for those for whom it appears to be hard to find the desired guidance in their own environment. However, it is not meant to replace already existing local expertise.
From the ranks of the EACPR a group of 22 renowned scientists have readily accepted to be voluntary members of the RSP mentor team, thereby covering a wide range of research in preventive cardiology. Their names and a short description of their specialties can be found here.
The RSP mentor team can be consulted with questions in the field of exercise physiology and basic science, cardiovascular disease epidemiology and, prevention, cardiac rehabilitation and sports cardiology.
The consultation of a RSP mentor will have an informal character, an open and stimulating discussion around the research project. It should be seen as a help to start up the project in the appropriate direction. The applicant:
The consultation will be given preferably on one occasion only, by revising and commenting the proposed summary. If needed, direct contacts via Skype, Facetime or similar electronic communication are encouraged .However this should not replace the usual long-term guidance that instead should be obtained locally. Once the research project is successfully completed, the applicants are invited:
