Description

‣ The European Crohn’s and Colitis Organization (ECCO) offers Research Fellowships to encourage and help young individuals in their career and promote innovative scientific research in the area of Inflammatory Bowel Diseases in Europe.

‣ ECCO Grant Applicants should be aware that these awards are offered to promote and encourage innovative research in Inflammatory Bowel Diseases by young and enthusiastic basic and/or clinical scientists.

‣ Individuals with a well established career in the field of IBD research are not considered eligible for these fellowships.

Eligibility

In order to be eligible for ECCO Grant, the candidate must:

  1. Not be older than 40 years or still in training at the time of application;
  2. Submit an original research project using the “The European Crohn’s and Colitis Organization Fellowships/Grants Technical Appendix”, not exceeding 13 pages;
  3. Having a hosting laboratory and/or department outside one’s own country, which has accepted to host and guide the Fellow under the supervision of a designated host for the duration of the Fellowship. The hosting institution is responsible, together with the Fellow, for the successful completion of the project
;
  4. If your hosting institute holds a current The European Crohn’s and Colitis Organization Fellowship, then another application for this period is not possible. Therefore, an institution cannot apply for two The European Crohn’s and Colitis Organization Fellowships in consecutive years.
  5. The European Crohn’s and Colitis Organization Fellowship applicants and their hosts need to be The European Crohn’s and Colitis Organization Members (at the time of application);
  6. The European Crohn’s and Colitis Organization Fellowship applicants are not limited to the The European Crohn’s and Colitis Organization Member Countries and can apply for non-European countries, but the benefit to The European Crohn’s and Colitis Organization has to be clearly stated;
  7. Fellowships aim to enhance the opportunity for IBD trainees to work in European centres. The principal purpose is to enhance the fabric and scientific contribution of The European Crohn’s and Colitis Organization. Exceptional circumstances such as an ECCO Member from an ECCO Member state travelling to a non-member state will be considered, but such an application is likely to receive a lower priority than an The European Crohn’s and Colitis Organization Member from a non-European country visiting Europe.

  • Originality and innovative nature of the proposal;
