Clinical and Research Centres Call

The ERA-EDTA Young Fellowship Programme is going to soon be opened for submissions: the next Call deadline is scheduled for February 1st, 2015.
The Young Fellowship Programme offers an opportunity to young investigators and clinicians to increase their contribution towards the development of Nephrology, Dialysis and Transplantation in their home countries as well as to increase the exchange among European Nephrology Centres.
