ECMM Young Investigators Travel Awards


All YITA applicants will be informed before the regular registration deadline of 15 September. 


The ECMM Young Investigators Travel Award facilitates young, non-established investigators in medical mycology to attend the Trends in Medical Mycology Congress. As a rule, the Awardee will be selected from among those presenting a poster in the TIMM Congress. An outstanding oral presentation may also be considered. Deadline for abstract submission is 1 June 2023.

The ECMM will present 10 Travel Awards. The presentations are selected by a Prize Committee on the basis of the scientific quality, including novelty, reliability and significance, of the Awardee’s presentation. The sum per Award is presently EUR 1000, to support travel and registration costs.

The Award is intended for young (not older than 35 years) persons. The Awardee should not hold an established (other than grant funded) post in medical mycology. It is also wished that the Awardee is a member of a society for mycology or at least aims to apply for membership. Eligible first or presenting authors are preferred, but an outstanding team may be selected if it can direct the Award to junior co-authors who are eligible.

These individuals and teams wishing to be considered as candidates of the Award in the 11th TIMM congress in Athens 2023, are kindly asked to fill out the form which they can find below and submit it to the Congress secretariat at first convenience. Deadline for submission: 1 September 2023.
