Also this year the ERA-EDTA will award 90 travel grants to the authors of the highest scoring abstracts in the various categories to attend the Virtual Congress 2021. The Presenting Authors must be 40 years old or younger on December 31, 2021.

Due to the fact that the Congress is fully virtual and thus no travel is involved, all awardees will receive a complementary full access to the Congress.

The Presenting Authors of the two best abstracts in each category, independently of age, will also receive a diploma.

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 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 Congress. 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. Applications were only possible through the abstract submission procedure. YOUNG NEPHROLOGISTS’ PLATFORM “FREE MEMBERSHIP PROJECT”
A 1-year free ERA-EDTA membership is given to 30 authors of an accepted abstract at an ERA-EDTA Congress. Only YNP Members can receive this free ERA-EDTA Membership.
