ECMM Young Investigators Travel Awards


The ECMM Young Investigators Travel Award facilitates young, non-established investigators in medical mycology to make educational or practical study visits to the Trends in Medical Mycology Congress or medical mycology oriented departments or institutions in other European countries. The institute visited is freely selected by the Awardee. As a rule, the Awardee will be selected from among those presenting a poster in the TIMM Congress.

An outstanding oral presentation may also be considered. The ECMM will present 4 Travel Awards. The presentations are selected by a Prize Committee on the basis of the scientific quality, including novelty, reliability and significance, of the Awardee's presentation. The sum per Award is presently EUR 1000, to support the travel and living costs of one week.
The institute visited is freely selected by the Awardee.

Eligibility:
The Award is intended for young (not older than 35 years) persons who are citizens of European countries or work in Europe. The Awardee should not hold an established (other than grant funded) post in medical mycology. It is also wished that the Awardee is a member of a society for mycology or at least aims to apply for membership. Eligible first or presenting authors are preferred, but an outstanding team may be selected if it can direct the Award to junior co-authors who are eligible.

These individuals and teams wishing to be considered as candidates of the Award in the 8th TIMM congress in Belgrade 2017, are kindly asked to fill out the form which they can find on the congress website and submit it to the Congress secretariat at first convenience. Deadline for submission: 1 September 2017.
