Action for Pulmonary Fibrosis would like to support researchers working in pulmonary fibrosis to attend the ERS International Congress, 7th-9th September 2020

The awards of £200 contribute towards costs for conference registration.  We have six awards available.

Applications are now invited from any UK based researcher who is the presenting author of an abstract accepted for the Virtual ERS International Congress.  Applications should be in the form of a brief (1-2 page) curriculum vitae, with a copy of the accepted abstract and a covering letter detailing the reasons why taking part in the conference is of particular importance.  

Successful applicants will be asked to write a short report of what they have learnt by attending the virtual conference and how this will impact their research.  This must be submitted within 6 weeks of the ERS International Congress for publication on our website.  Winners must also acknowledge Action for Pulmonary Fibrosis in any presentations, posters, press releases or announcements related to their application/abstract.

Applications should be submitted by email to by 15th August 2020.

Applications will be judged on the basis of scientific merit and winners will be announced by 28th August 2020.
