Symposium Bursaries

We strongly encourage young researchers to apply for the opportunity to present their research.  Bursaries, up to a value of €500, will be offered to selected Presenting Authors of accepted abstracts “who are studying for a higher degree (e.g. PhD), OR who are in their first post-doctoral position, OR who are in early post-grad clinical training programme”.  The application is available to anyone who fulfils these criteria, without geographical restrictions.  Support will be awarded based on the abstract ranking.  These bursaries will be provided during the Symposium.
