Training Support

A central element of our work is helping to fund innovative educational programmes, as well as international scientific cooperations.

Each year we support a range of activities and projects and call for our Member Societies to partner up and apply for financial support.

Application is open until April 20, 2016.

Types of supported activities

With this support, UEG funds educational programmes in form of onsite meetings, courses, workshops, symposia or other educational events from all UEG Member Societies. We aim to endorse teaching activities in which attendees will be taught the management of gastroenterological diseases to improve the standard of care.

We support such activities with up to € 25,000 covering up to 100% of the total costs.

Application deadline for meetings organised in 2017: April 20, 2016
