Research travel grant
Research Travel Grant
The EONS Research Travel Grant offers two grants of €2,500 each. It was created to give a nurse (who must be an EONS member) the opportunity to spend time with an established researcher or research team in another country, in order to:
- build collaborations and networks
- improve clinical research practice in your own country
- develop your own research skills
- further your research idea, proposal or project
EONS members eligible to apply for the grant include:
- clinical research / trials nurses
- nurse researchers in a clinical or academic setting
- clinical nurses interested in research
Both novice and established researchers will be considered for this grant.
The grant funds one or two visits to the host institution (including travel at economy fare, accommodation and expenses).
The focus of the grant is to build capacity and capability through a period of close working with and alongside experienced clinical and/or academic researchers.
