Research Fellowship

New Applications can be mailed throughout the entire year and will automatically be considered for the next application round for 2023.

Application Deadline for 2023: 31 August 2022


The purpose is to support training and experience for European Neurologists in any area of basic or clinical or applied research in neuroscience. The research work must be carried out at a European academic neurological department outside the country of residence. All applications should demonstrate experience/training of clear value to the home department/individual beyond that available in their own countries/institutions.  

Expected to be of typically 12 months and no less than 6 months duration, to lead either to completion of a higher degree, a grant application or peer-reviewed publication.

Expected to be of typically and no more than 6 months duration for individuals who might otherwise not have the opportunity to gain high quality research experience, but who may wish to pursue a research career. Applications from more experienced clinicians/researchers requiring training in a specific research methodology or technique not currently available in their own country and of clear value to home department will also be considered.


EAN has developed a budget for 72 months’ worth for the Research Fellowships, as duration of grants can vary from project to project. Successful applicants for both research training or research experience fellowships will be awarded € 2,000.- per month, plus travel expenses of up to 500 Euro (for the trip to and from the host department).

Travelling costs will only be reimbursed after the end of the research fellowship, upon receipt of evaluation forms from both the fellow and mentor of the Host Department and the fellow’s final report which should include a summary of activity during the fellowship and the achieved results.
