New research grant will be available thanks to the ESPR and Cure&Care collaboration
ESPR has collaborated with Cure&Care to establish a new annual research grant to support scientific excellence and research in the area of neonatal care.

This is the first year of the collaboration between ESPR and Cure&Care, which is an educational initiative led by AXON Communications and supported by an unrestricted educational grant from Covidien*.

The annual Cure&Care Award consists of a EUR 3,000 research grant to support either clinical or translational research within the focus area of the award, which will change on an annual basis.

To apply for the 2016 Cure&Care Award, which focuses on the area of neonatal critical care, please send a 2-page project protocol and CV to the ESPR secretariat through MCA (email) no later than the 30 June 2016.

Your submission should include a scientific and referenced description of the research project, in addition to a brief description on how the awarded funds will be used to progress the research project.

All submissions will be evaluated by a Scientific Committee appointed by the ESPR Council. The recipient of the Cure&Care Award will be announced at the upcoming European Academy of Pediatric Societies (EAPS) congress, which will be held in Geneva (Switzerland) from the 21st to the 25th of October 2016.
