Funded places and bursaries for conferences

Making world-leading conferences accessible to even more people. We want as many people as possible to be able to access the latest knowledge and build invaluable professional connections.


Conferences remain one of the very best ways of doing this, but we know that costs can be prohibitive. That’s why we created our bursaries and free places initiative. It’s a simple, transparent and cost-effective way for the Society and industry partners to support healthcare professionals to attend our annual conference, as well as other conferences.

Applying for a free place or bursary

We offer bursaries including registration, travel and accommodation for European conferences to Society of Tissue Viability members.

We offer free places for the Society of Tissue Viability annual conference which are available to all UK practicing Healthcare Professionals. We also offer a number of travel and accommodation bursaries for Society of Tissue Viability members each year at the Society conference.

We ask all recipients of a place to write a short article about their experience after the event (with pictures if possible) to include in our future materials.

There is still a lot of learning that we need to explore to improve our care and to improve patient’s quality of living

When you are a nurse and you’ve been doing diabetic wound care for so many years, you think that you already know everything. When I attended the EWMA conference in France, I put an end to that thought.
