Chiesi supports Future of Neonatology Research Bursaries
The charity for babies born premature or sick Bliss has announced the availability of educational bursaries to support the dissemination of research into neonatology at the European Academy of Paediatric Societies (EAPS), 2018. These bursaries have been supported by the provision of funding from Chiesi Limited UK.
There will be ten educational bursaries of £500, which will be awarded to ten researchers to support attendance at EAPS to present their independent neonatal research. Applicants must have submitted, and have accepted, abstracts for poster and/or oral presentation at EAPS.
Chiesi has had involvement in the setting of the criteria for these bursaries, but the processing of applications (including the advertisement and selection of applicants) will be carried out independently by Bliss. The closing date is 10 September.
One representative from Bliss and a member of the medical team at Chiesi will present the educational bursaries during an award dinner at EAPS, on the evening of Thursday, 1 November. Successful applicants will be encouraged to share their research over dinner, and will have the opportunity for discussion with other bursary-winning innovative researchers in the neonatology field.
