Convocatòria (URL)
1. Not be older than 40 years or still in training at the time of application.
2. Submit an original research project using the “ECCO Fellowships and Grants Online Submission Pages”. Incomplete applications will not be evaluated.
3. Have a hosting laboratory and/or department outside one’s own country of practice, 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. At the time of the application as well as prior to the commencement of the Fellowship the candidate must not be involve/work in any research project at the future hosting institute.
5. If your hosting institute holds a current ECCO Fellowship, then another application for this period is not possible. Therefore, an institute cannot apply for two ECCO Fellowships in consecutive years.
6. ECCO Fellowship applicants and their host supervisors need to be ECCO Members (at the time of application).
7. ECCO Fellowship applicants are not limited to the ECCO Member Countries and can apply from non-European countries; however, the impact of the project for the IBD Community has to be clearly stated.
8. Fellowships aim to enhance the opportunity for IBD Trainees to work in European centres. Exceptional circumstances such as an applicant from an ECCO Member Country travelling to a non-member country will be considered, but such an application is likely to receive a lower priority than an applicant from a non-member country visiting an ECCO Member Country.
9. Candidate can apply for one specific ECCO Research Award only. Several applications with the same topic for different ECCO Research Awards will not be taken into account for review.
10. Recipients that have already been awarded with an ECCO Fellowship in the past cannot reapply.
