EPUAP Research Project Collaboration Funding
The EPUAP Research Committee opens a next call for Research Project Collaboration Funding. There are opportunities to underpin high quality research through the development of agreed standards and language with clear publication outputs or to pump prime future collaborative funding bids.
The funding is not for direct research costs, but rather costs to facilitate face-to-face (i.e. travel, accommodation and venue costs) meetings of collaborators from EU member and associated countries* and will comprise a maximum of €10 000 over 1-2 years. The funding is available only for EPUAP members. The funded project lead will be requested to submit an abstract about the research and collaboration covered by EPUAP for a free paper session for at least one EPUAP annual meeting.
Non-profit research institutions (i.e. universities, etc.) or healthcare institutions (i.e. hospitals, nursing homes, etc.) are eligible for funding. For-profit entities (i.e. companies, SMEs, etc.) are NOT eligible for funding.
The applications should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org before December 31st, 2019.

*A minimum of three collaborators from at least 2 different countries. Associated countries are all non EU Members in Europe and Israel
EPUAP Exchange Scholarships for Emerging Research
The EPUAP Research Committee opens next call for exchange scholarships for students / early post docs (*) in the context of “emerging pressure ulcer research”. The aim is to provide opportunities for Master/PhD students or early post-docs exchanges between high quality laboratories and clinical academic teams working in the field of pressure ulcer management and prevention. Interdisciplinary works should be encouraged. Funding will be awarded to cover travel and subsistence (some research costs may be permitted) and spend one to four weeks in another clinical/research structure that is based in a EU member country or associated country, with the objective to learn a specific experimental technique or methodological approach. 1 000 € to 3 000 € will be allocated to each student, depending on the time spent in the host institution. The funding is available only for EPUAP members. The funded student will be requested to submit an abstract about the research and exchange for the EPUAP annual meeting. Successful applicants will be promoted on the EPUAP website and social media.
The submission form is described below. The applications should be sent to email@example.com before December 31st 2019.

early post docs(*): a maximum of 3 years after PhD award.
