Research Grants

EHA Research Grants support postdocs in advancing their career, e.g. towards becoming the leader of a research group.

There are three categories:

Junior Research Grant: €50,000 per year for 2 years (total €100,000)

For basic researchers within 4 years of their PhD graduation. The month of graduation must be less than 4 years before closing date of application, exceptions must be justified.

Advanced Research Grant: €80,000 per year for 2 years (total €160,000)

For basic researchers 4-8 years after their PhD graduation. The time interval between month of graduation and closing date of application, exceptions must be justified.

Physician Scientist Research Grant: €80,000 per year for 2 years (total €160,000)

For physician scientists who comply with:

  • Being within 2 years (at the closing date of the application) of graduation for either MD, PhD, or hematology training.
  • Must have protected time for performing the research project, to be justified in the letter of support by the institute where the research will be performed.

NOTE REGARDING THE FLEXIBILITY OF EHA RESEARCH GRANTS.
In the application stage, there is flexibility in what you want to use the funding for. Once the award is granted, there is no more flexibility. You are required to adhere to the approved budget!
