Travel grants and awards
Travel grants and awards for PhD students & Postdocs:
Several awards and travel grants will be made available to junior researchers submitting their abstract to this meeting. Thanks to the support of NEVBO, EVBO, NAVBO, Korean Vascular Biology society and others we can support numerous travel grants and poster prizes; you can apply during the abstract submission process. We are furthermore planning “Science in the Box” sessions during which students can pitch their work during an informal setting.
Aletta Jacobs award:
in particular we would like to draw your attention to our awards for female scientists in the field of vascular biology, that are at the start of their career. The Aletta Jacobs award was first introduced at the joint Dutch German vascular biology meeting in 2018 in Amsterdam, and continued to promote cross-border vascular research involving junior scientists. Eligible are female PhD students, and female Postdocs within one year upon their thesis defense. Aletta Jacobs was the first female physician in the Netherlands, and also the first woman to obtain a PhD in Medicine in The Netherlands. She showed a strong engagement for women in society and she was a role model for many female scientists to follow, both in the Netherlands and internationally.
