Duration of Fellowship
and Funding

The fellowship should last for 4 months and must take place in the first half of 2025 (January to June). The fellow must ensure his/her availability for the exact agreed period as any postponement is not possible. Based on a fellowship duration of 4 months, the fellow will receive a grant (€5,000) 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.


More information on the available research projects will be published shortly before the opening of the application.


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.
