SECEC/ESSSE Research Grant
SECEC/ESSSE offers two research grants that are intended to promote and support either basic or clinical research related to shoulder and elbow pathologies. The primary purpose of these grants is to foster projects that provide useful information and/or develop and provide methodological tools for the benefit of our society. The obtained knowledge will be at free disposal for SECEC/ESSSE members.
Application Info 15th SECEC/ESSSE Research Grant 2021
Methodological and epidemiological projects will be favoured. Funding for a maximum of 20,000 Euro will be provided for a project in either clinical or basic research. Only ordinary, associate- or corresponding members are eligible for application. The application can be authored or co-authored by non-members provided that there is at least one SECEC/ESSSE member in the author's list. The written application should include a description of the project, the involved persons and institutions as well as a financial and time plan. Only written applications in English are accepted.
The recipient of the grant will be asked to produce a progress report to the Research & Development Committee, due one month prior to the SECEC/ESSSE or ICSS meeting. When an oral and/or written publication results from the supported research, acknowledgment using a SECEC/ESSSE logo or text is required.
The next deadline for submission is June 30, 2021. Applications will be reviewed and selected by the Research & Development Committee.
The decision will be communicated at the following SECEC/ESSSE meeting in Poznan 2021.
