ESVS Annual Meeting Travel Grants for ESVS Members from outside Europe

ESVS offers Annual Meeting Travel Grants to allow ESVS members from outside Europe to attend the ESVS Annual Meeting in Valencia, 25-28 September 2018.
This year ESVS has provided funds for 9 Annual Meeting Travel Grants of €1000 each.
Applicants whose abstracts are accepted for presentation at the 2018 ESVS Annual Meeting will be considered first.

The aim is to provide funding to those who would not otherwise be able to attend the ESVS Annual Meeting as they do not have other sources of support.

Scope and grants available
The grants are provided to support transport and accommodation costs to the ESVS Annual Meeting only. Grants are limited to €1000 per applicant. Only one grant per abstract accepted/presented will be provided, i.e. for presentations or posters with multiple authors, only the presenting author will be supported. If an author has more than one accepted abstract, the grant will be forwarded only once. All travel grants will be paid to recipients after they have attended the meeting- payments will not be made prior to travel or on site.

Travel Grant Selection Committee The applications will be evaluated by a selection committee.

To be eligible, applicants must:

  • Have an abstract submitted for presentation at ESVS Annual Meeting
  • Not have any other financial support for travel and accommodation
  • Be the first author and the presenter of the abstract

How to apply
The applicants must complete the following documents:

  • An application form online
  • A letter of recommendation from their employer or supervisor, supporting their application and stating that they will not obtain sponsorship for this conference from any other source
  • The abstract submitted to the ESVS Annual Meeting
  • A copy of the abstract submission confirmation email from ESVS Annual Meeting

Only applications with all required documents will be considered.

The ESVS Annual Meeting Abstract Revision Committee notes that abstract selection will be made purely on the basis of scientific quality. The peer review is performed anonymously, in advance, and independently from the assignment of grants. Annual Meeting Travel Grants will be awarded only after the authors have been notified of the decision to accept an abstract in the meeting. However, in order to ensure transparency and to avoid any conflict of interest, all applicants must declare any conflict of interest relating to their presented work and the above organisations.

Participants receiving an ESVS Annual Meeting Travel Grant must provide a short (500 words) account of their experience at ESVS Annual Meeting, which may be used in the ESVS newsletters and ESVS website to publicise the work of ESVS.

ESVS Research Grant Application

The ESVS Research Grant facilitates research projects conducted by young European vascular surgeons. The amount of each grant will be limited in order to allow as many grants as possible to be approved and to help the maximum number of young surgeons. Allocation of the grants will be decided ultimately by the Scientific Committee set up to consider the merits of each application.

The results of the work for which the grant is given must be submitted for publication in the European Journal of Vascular and Endovascular Surgery, previous submissions for publications in other media will not be accepted. A letter confirming this intent must be part of the grant application.

The applicant must be European, a trainee member or a full member and aged no more than 40 years.
