EPUAP Exchange Scholarships for Students

The EPUAP Scientific Committee launches its first call for exchange scholarships for students in the context of “emerging pressure ulcer research”. The aim is to provide opportunities for PhD or early post-doc students exchanges between high quality laboratories and clinical academic teams working in the field of pressure ulcer management and prevention. Interdisciplinary works should be encouraged.

Funding will be awarded to cover travel and subsistence (some research costs may be permitted) and spend one to four weeks in another clinical/research structure that is based in a EU member country or associated country, with the objective to learn a specific experimental technique or methodological approach. 1k€ to 3k€ will be allocated to each student, depending on the time spent in the host institution.

The funding is available only for EPUAP members. The funded student will be requested to submit an abstract about the research and collaboration covered by EPUAP for the students free paper session during the EPUAP annual meeting.

The submission form is described below. The applications should be sent to office@epuap.org before December 1st 2017.
