EVST Congress grants

EVST Congress Grants now fall under the category of
ESVS Third Party Membership Benefits.

Industry sponsored annual meeting travel grants

The MedTech Europe Ethical charter came into force on 1st January, 2018 making direct sponsorship of Health Care Professionals (HCPs) by MedTech member companies prohibited. As a result, these companies channel their support through trusted partners such as the ESVS Society, Health Care Organisations (HCOs: i.e. hospitals, clinics, medical institutions) or the PCO (Professional Congress Organiser).

Since 2018, ESVS has offered industry sponsored grants to our members to attend the Annual Meeting and will seek for additional support from companies in 2022.
