  3. Applicants must be active ESR members. (To renew or subscribe for ESR membership 2022, please proceed to this webpage for more information.)

  • During one and the same calendar year, candidates may only apply for one of the offered ESOR training programmes. Multiple applications for different programmes will be rejected.
  • The selected fellow is asked to take care of his/her working permit and insurance. Please note that he/she is responsible for his/her visa. The training centre will help the selected fellow with all organisational details.

Duration and funding

The fellowship will last for 2 months and must take place in the first half of 2023 (January to June). The fellow has to ensure his/her availability for the exact agreed period as any postponement is not possible. The fellow will receive a grant (€2.500,-) upon completion of the training and delivery of a final report, signed by the head of department of the hosting training centre. The grant is intended to contribute in part to travel and accommodation expenses during the training period. ESOR cannot guarantee that the grant will cover these costs in full. During the period of the training the fellow is responsible for covering his/her expenses and his/her own health insurance.



After successful completion of the training the trainee receives a certificate from ESR/ESOR. In order to receive this, the fellow must present a written report about his/her work and activities during the programme.
