Training Support

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

In 2014 we support a range of activities and projects and call for our Member Societies to apply for financial support and also encourage them to partner up. Long-term project support is open to all societies active in the field of gastroenterology, if the project is organised in collaboration with a UEG Member Society.

Types of supported activities

Support of meetings

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.

Support of long-term projects

With this support, we fund projects with a long-term perspective and educational resonance, to be developed in a time frame of up to maximum 3 years. We aim to support international, interdisciplinary and educationally innovative projects with a long-term vision in the field of digestive diseases. 

We support such activities with up to € 100,000 in the course of three years, covering up to 100% of the total costs.
