- The applicant must be associated with a dental school or research institute in a country that is a Full or Associate Member of the European Society of Endodontology;
- The application must include:
- a protocol of the proposed research/innovation project, which should describe the background to the topic and details of the methodology with reference to previous research and/or scholarship in the field.
- detailed costings of the proposed work, the sources from which funds have already been obtained, and the sources to which funding applications have already been made. Details should be given of services, equipment or consumables for which the ESE Annual Early Career Educator Grant is being sought.
