This funding opportunity is 10,000€ to be awarded every second year during the ESPR Congress. 

Eligibility: (Registrar) paediatric radiologist working in European institutions; no age restraints. Only one grant may be awarded per applicant during their academic career.

Application and deadline: A two-page proposal comprising a short CV and a summary of the project background, aims, material & method should be sent to the ESPR Office to the att. of the ESPR Research Committee Chair; deadline January 31st.

Selection Process: The research grant proposal will be evaluated by the ESPR Research Committee. Innovative, well thought out projects with a high likelihood of competitive funding beyond the initial phase will receive the strongest scores. The applicant typically receives notification of award approximately six weeks after the deadline.
