 *ESR Research Seed Grant Global

The ESR Research Seed Grant Global is a novel seed grant initiative by the European Society of Radiology (ESR) in cooperation with the European Institute for Biomedical Imaging Research (EIBIR) and kindly supported by an unrestricted, non-exclusive grant from Siemens Healthineers. The purpose of the program is to stimulate and provide funding for innovative projects and pilot studies from Eastern Europe, Central Asia, and Africa that will subsequently lead to larger studies and further funding applications. The funding priorities 2022 were for research in enhancing quality in radiological imaging and interventional radiology and in value-based radiology with a focus on (but not limited to) ultrasound, CT, and conventional imaging.

ESR/ESOR Fundamentals of Radiological Research

Suitable for any ESR member interested in undertaking research, but with a particular focus on those early in their careers. This course consists of 5 online sessions led by luminaries in the field and aims to present some of the fundamental aspects of radiological research.
