What does the ERA-EDTA offer?
For courses organized by ERA-EDTA Bodies (Immunonephrolgy Working Group, EURECA-m, EUDial, WGIKD, DESCARTES, CKD-MBD, DIABESITY, ERN, Young Nephrologists’ Platform, ERBP, ERA-EDTA Registry, EUTox), the CME Committee will evaluate the scientific value of these courses, their quality and relevance, but will not assign them any additional funds other than the annual contribution allotted by the Association.
For new courses organized by third parties the only type of support will consist in the travel costs (maximum amount covered, economy flex air ticket or 1st class train ticket or mileage allowances based on national charts for reimbursement if the trip is done by car) for maximum three speakers.

In specific countries (in which the GDP per capita per year is lower than USD 10,000), also the accommodation costs for the same number of speakers will be covered by ERA-EDTA. The amount will depend on the distance travelled by the speaker (travel costs) and the venue in which the event will take place (accommodation). The contribution of ERA-EDTA will be based on the exact amounts paid. If necessary, advance payments can be done, not exceeding 50% of the estimated total. The amounts of advance payments will be based on charts prepared by the ERA-EDTA Headquarters and freely accessible on the web-site.

The educational programme 2018 does not include CMEs to be held during the 55th ERA-EDTA Congress (Copenhagen, Denmark – May 24-27, 2018).
