The purpose of the EADV Research Fellowship is to provide support for young dermatologists or trainees in Dermatology- Venereology or junior scientists from other basic science disciplines (post-doctoral scientists) to receive advanced training on basic or clinical research in Dermatology and Venereology in a high standard clinical or research center in a country other than their own.
The ultimate goal of the fellowship is to support the initiation of an academic career by the Fellow/ Young Investigator, to transfer knowledge and technical skills to the Home Institution and promote the establishment of research collaborations among European and international centers.
The EADV Research Fellowship lasts for 12 months and should start within the first trimester of the year after submission (January to March). This is following a formal evaluation of the application process by the PPRC and approval by the EADV Board at the annual EADV meeting. Period shorter than 12 months will not be accepted.
