Research Portals

The ESCRS Research Portals are a place to update members about the ongoing Clinical Research projects being funded by the ESCRS, and to present the results of completed projects, including all presentations and publications related to the project. There are 2 types of research funding available from the ESCRS: The clinical Research Awards and The ESCRS pioneer Awards

Clinical Research Awards

The competition is open to clinicians and researchers with a current ESCRS membership and who have been a member for at least the last three consecutive years. Applicants must hold a full time clinical/research post at an EU-based clinical or academic centre.

The purpose of the Clinical Research Awards are:

  • to support, encourage and fund individuals that actively conduct clinical research in the field of cataract and refractive surgery;
  • to facilitate and support an independent culture of clinical study for the ultimate benefit of patients with cataract and refractive disorders;
  • to engage and encourage the networking potential of the ophthalmic clinical community across the EU to improve both patient care and outcomes.

The amount for funding that may be awarded to a successful applicant is up to €750,000 (maximum), and for a project with a duration of up to three years.
