We “ASQ” for your help for young nephrologists living in low income countries
ERA-EDTA has circulated an electronic feedback questionnaire aimed at collecting impressions, suggestions and remarks from congress members of the ERA-EDTA Congresses.
Based on the final number of completed questionnaires completed following the 2020 ERA-EDTA Fully Virtual Congress, ERA-EDTA will offer congress grants to young nephrologists living in low income countries (GPD < USD 10,000) to attend the ERA-EDTA Congress in Berlin. The winners will be chosen among those who have submitted an abstract that is then accepted for presentation at the Congress.
This initiative, known as Altruistic Support by Questionnaire (ASQ), has become part of the exclusive ERA-EDTA advantages for young nephrologists living in developing countries all over the world where there is a greater need for education and scientific updates.
The Presenting Authors must be 45 years old or younger on December 31, 2021.
To apply, please fill in the appropriate fields during the abstract submission.
