Take a look back at ECTS 2018

One week after the close of ECTS 2018, we would like to thank you once more for your active participation and for making this year’s congress a huge success!

We  would like to take this opportunity to look back at some highlights of ECTS 2018.


Support for Outstanding Scientific Work

We are proud to have received numerous outstanding scientific abstracts that were rewarded with a number of grants and awards. All in all, 35 participants were supported with ECTS and IFMRS travel grants and 7 honored with an award.

Thanks also to the ECTS-Lilly Scholarship and ECTS Academy, we were able to provide financial support to 45 young researchers and MDs to attend the congress.

We are looking forward to much more impressive scientific work in the next year.
