Annual Meeting Travel Grants

by | Mar 27, 2017 | News

ESVS offers first-time Annual Meeting Travel Grants to allow Asian and other non-European ESVS members to attend the ESVS Annual Meeting in Lyon, 19-22 September 2017.
This year ESVS has provided funds for 9 Annual Meeting Travel Grants of €1000 each one.
Applicants whose abstracts will be accepted for a presentation at ESVS Annual Meeting, and members of the ESVS, will be firstly considered.
Aim 
The aim is to provide funding to those who would not otherwise be able to attend the ESVS Annual Meeting as they do not have other sources of support.
Scope and grants available 
The grants are provided to support transport and accommodation costs to the ESVS Annual Meeting only. Grants are limited to €1000 per applicant outside European countries. Only one grant per abstract accepted/presented will be provided, i.e. for presentations or posters with multiple authors, only the presenting author will be supported.  If one author has more than one accepted abstract, the grant will be forwarded only once. All travel grants will be paid to recipients after attendance of ESVS Annual Meeting and there will be no prior-to travelling or on-site payment of funds.
Travel Grant Selection Committee  
The applications will be evaluated by a selection committee.
Eligibility 
To be eligible, applicants must:

  • Have an abstract submitted for presentation at ESVS Annual Meeting 2017
  • Not have any other financial support for travel and accommodation
  • Be the first author and the presenter of the abstract

Assessment criteria 
In the event that applications for ESVS Annual Meeting Travel Grants exceed the funds available, the following scoring system will be used to allocate them:

Area Value Points
Abstracts Abstract Accepted Oral presentation 3
  Abstract Accepted Poster 2
Abstract Rejected 1
ESVS Corresponding Trainee member  3
ESVS Corresponding member 2

How to apply 
The applicants must complete the following documents:

  • An application form online
  • A letter of recommendation from their employer or supervisor, supporting their application and stating that they will not obtain sponsorship for this conference from any other source
  • The abstract submitted to the ESVS Annual Meeting
  • A copy of the abstract submission confirmation email from ESVS Annual Meeting

The documents should be sent to esvs_lyon2017@mci-group.com. Only applications with all required documents will be considered.
Deadline: 29th May 2017
The ESVS Annual Meeting Abstract Revision Committee notes that abstract selection will be made purely on the basis of scientific quality. The peer review is performed anonymously, in advance, and independently from the assignment of grants. Annual Meeting Travel Grants will be awarded only after the authors have been notified of the decision to accept an abstract in the meeting.   However, in order to ensure transparency and to avoid any conflict of interest, all applicants must declare any conflict of interest relating to their presented work and the above organisations.
Participants receiving an ESVS Annual Meeting Travel Grant must provide a short (500 words) account of their experience at ESVS Annual Meeting, which may be used in the ESVS newsletters and ESVS website to publicise the work of ESVS.
