Open Calls for Research Grants

The Research Mobility Fellowship and Research Training Workshops calls are OPEN!


1. Research Mobility Fellowships

This program aims to financially support PhD students and young medical doctors working in ERN member institutions to undertake short scientific visits of 2 weeks to 3 months duration.


2.  Research Training Workshops

This program will fund the organization of two-day research training workshops. The workshops can be proposed by the ERN and EJP-RD members and will be open exclusively to ERN researchers, who will be invited upon application and will receive full coverage of their travel and accommodation cost. The workshops should cover innovative research themes including novel laboratory or diagnostic or therapeutic methodologies relevant to rare diseases. Interdisciplinary and inter-ERN initiatives will be welcome.
