European Respiratory Society (ERS) Travel Fellowships

Action for Pulmonary Fibrosis would like to support researchers working in pulmonary fibrosis to attend the ERS International Congress in Milan, 9-13th September 2017. The awards of £750 contribute towards costs for conference registration, accommodation and travel. We have three awards available.

Applications are now invited from any UK based researcher who has an abstract accepted for the ERS Congress. Applications should be in the form of a brief (1-2 page) curriculum vitae, with a copy of the accepted abstract and a covering letter detailing the reasons why attendance is of particular importance.

Successful applicants will be asked to write a report of what they have learnt by attending the conference and how this will impact their research. This must be submitted within 6 weeks of return from the ERS conference for publication on our website. Winners must also acknowledge Action for Pulmonary Fibrosis in any presentations, posters, press releases or announcements related to their application/abstract.

Applications should be submitted by email to by 31st July 2017.

Applications will be judged on the basis of scientific merit and winners will be announced by 14th August 2017.
