CALL FOR APPLICATIONS: ESO Department to Department Visit Programme

The ESO Department to Department Visit Programme is a grant of 1,000 EUR offered to up to 8 young physicians and researchers to support a short visit of 1 week or as a contribution to a longer visit to a European department or laboratory.

The programme aims to provide insight into stroke departments outside the applicant`s home country. The short visit may play an important role in the career of young physicians and researchers by establishing contact with people and departments who may provide future research and job opportunities.
