Educational grants for National Societies

Recipients 2023

Successful educational activities work when they address the very specific needs of their audience. Those best placed to know their audience are the local scientific societies. EAS Outreach Programme works to support national atherosclerosis societies, and in 2022 EAS have made funds available to support them in organising educational activities that are in line with EAS aims.

Following a call for applications and review process, we are happy to announce that EAS has awarded 13 National Societies a grant for their projects.
