Visiting Fellowship Programme for Researchers

We support five gastroenterology researchers with visiting fellowships to spend two weeks at a renowned European training centre in 2018/19. Each researcher receives € 1,250 to contribute to travel and accommodation costs.

With this programme, we aim to increase the interaction between young researchers and prestigious European training centres, as well as to create new windows of clinical and scientific collaboration.

Application is closed.
