The European Veterinary Emergency and Critical Care Society (EVECCS) promotes the development of veterinary emergency and critical care across Europe. In order to improve the accessibility of this specialty to colleagues, EVECCS has developed an Annual Travel Grant for two of its members. Two travel grants will be granted: one for veterinarian, and one for nurse/technician. The two receivers of the travel grant will receive the sum of 1000€ each to visit a European or an American institution lead by an ECVECC diplomate before the 1st of June 2024. The travel grant is dedicated in helping you to afford visit related expenses (charged visit fees, travel, accommodation…)
A list of institutions and contact details of the local supervisors can be found hereunder. Please carefully check the details for each institution, particularly the possible periods, durations, as well as required language skills. Please note that facilities may charge fees for the visit and request special tests or conditions due to pandemic covid-19. Afterwards contact the local supervisor or the travel grant committee to make further inquiries and assess the feasibility of a visit. As soon as the applicant and local supervisor have come to an agreement, the application form must be filled in and signed by both. Applications are open from the 1st of February to the 15th of May 2023 and must be signed and submitted to travel committee at firstname.lastname@example.org. Announcement of the winners will be done during EVECC congress in Porto (1-3rd of June 2023). At the end of the visit, we will ask for a short evaluation to both the applicant and the local supervisor. The applicant will write a short report of their visit, for potential use on the EVECCS website, newsletter and/or EVECCS booth at congress(es), to be received by the 1st of June 2024 at the latest.
