We “ASQ” for your help for young nephrologists in developing countries
ERA-EDTA has circulated an electronic feedback questionnaire aimed at collecting impressions, suggestions and remarks among the delegates of the 2014 and 2015 Congresses, held in Amsterdam and London respectively.
Based on the final number of feedback questionnaires completed, ERA-EDTA will offer congress grants to young nephrologists living in developing countries (GPD < USD 10,000) to attend the ERA-EDTA Congress in Vienna. The winners will be chosen among those who have submitted an abstract which is then accepted for presentation at Congress.
This initiative, named Altruistic Support by Questionnaire (ASQ), has become part of the exclusive ERA-EDTA advantages for young nephrologists living in disadvantaged areas of the world where education and scientific updates are needed.
The Presenting Authors must be 45 years old, or younger, by December 31, 2016.
To apply, please fill in the appropriate fields during the online abstract submission.
