ESE Young Investigator Research Grant
2019 grants have been awarded. For 2020 grants please apply after 1st January.
The aim of the annual ESE Young Investigator Research Grant is to support young investigators in the early phase of their research career in Endodontology.
A "young" investigator in the context of this award is defined as an individual who is ‘professionally’ young in academic terms rather than in chronological age, e.g. pre-doctoral students at all levels (MSc, PhD students and equivalent), and up to 3 years following the award of a PhD (or equivalent). Undergraduate students are excluded.
A maximum of 10,000 € will be awarded annually. The call for ESE Young Investigator Research Grants will be open all year; applications will be evaluated as they are submitted. The award will be budget-based, requiring a definitive itemized budget, with a maximum of 5,000 € per project. If the sum is not sufficient to complete the project, the application will need to show how the deficit will be covered. The research environment (University, laboratory, clinic) should provide the basic equipment (computers, motors, bond strength testing machines, etc.): these will not be funded. However, consumables (instruments, reagents, etc.) and specific services (electron or confocal microscopy, micro-CTs, statistical analysis etc.) can be covered. Travel costs will be covered only for the short-term visits to another laboratory; congress fees or travel costs to conferences are excluded. The ESE will not pay institutional overheads, and may split the grant between several applicants, according to merit. Payment will be made to institutions, and not to individuals.
All proposals will be evaluated by members of the Research Committee, using the ESE Annual Research Grant Evaluation Form. The questions considered in the evaluation are as follows:
Only those receiving a mean score of at least 3.5/5 points (70% of the maximum) are deemed fundable. The decision of the adjudicating panel will be final and all participants will be notified of the decision within two months after receiving the application.
