The EFLM Executive Board has the pleasure to announce the 2024 edition of the EFLM Scientific Research Grant
The EFLM Scientific Research Grant has been established to promote science and facilitate research in Laboratory Medicine in Europe.
Two grants of the maximum amount of € 10.000 each, are awarded each year, one for an applicant coming from a country enjoying “Vic Blaton” scholarship program and the other for an applicant coming from any other country in Europe.
Applicants must submit a detailed budget of the study with a list of all required reagents or consumables, necessary to perform their study.
It is the responsibility of the applicant to ensure that allocated funds are sufficient to allow completion of the study. If additional funds are needed, a letter of support from a third party is provided that confirms that the rest of the budget shall be covered by that third party.
The responsibility of the selected applicant is to publish the findings of the study in an international (preferably) or national peer-reviewed journal, within two years, after receiving the grant. The grant's recipient who fail to fulfil this requirement shall be automatically disqualified from all future applications for any other EFLM award, bursary or grant within the next five years. The selected applicant can apply for this grant only once.
Eligible applications will be judged by a Research Grant Evaluation Committee composed of the Chair of the EFLM Committee for Science, the Chair of the EFLM Committee for Education and Training and one EFLM Executive Board Member selected by the EFLM President.
