Funded projects

The call for mini-proposals was designed so that young scientists could apply for funding for their own projects. Members were eligible to apply if it had been less than six (non-clinician) or less than nine (clinician) years since completion of their PhD/MD. A total of 44 applications were received. After evaluation by the Steering Committee, eleven projects were selected and are now being funded until the end of the second funding period (end of 2018) with up to €30,000 each.
