NRS Young Investigator Travel Grant

As a respiratory scientist, it is not always easy to obtain funding for travel to international Symposia or Conferences outside the main respiratory field. To promote unconventional thinking and innovation in respiratory medicine, the NRS supports young investigators who are NRS members to travel to non‐respiratory high quality scientific meetings with a travel grant of maximum €1250.
