EU Funding: What UEG Can Offer

Download presentations on funding opportunities for digestive health research in Horizon 2020 and learn how your peers are managing European research grants in digestive health.

On occasion of the 25th UEG Week in Barcelona, UEG organised a dedicated Horizon 2020 Session entitled “EU Funding: What UEG can offer”, to meet with peers managing European research grants in digestive health research and to explain how UEG can support your application to EU funding.  

Chaired by UEG President Michael Manns and UEG Research Board Chair Arthur Kaser, the session featured:
  • an introduction on funding opportunities for digestive health research in Horizon 2020 (Rebecca Breuer)
  • case studies and role models in digestive health research: from leading a Horizon 2020 research consortium (Philip Rosenstiel), to winning a Marie-Curie fellowship (Markus Tschurtschenthaler), to applying for an ERC grant (Harry Sokol)
  • a presentation how UEG can effectively support your application to EU Funding (Arthur Kaser)
