The grant will fund a single research project that focuses on a clinical problem relevant to Veterinary Emergency and Critical Care up to a total of €5000.
The scil Research Grant Committee is looking to fund studies that are clinically relevant, achievable and adhere to the highest ethical standards. Funds CANNOT be used for salaries, purchase of laboratory equipment or overhead costs. At least one investigator must be a member of EVECCS.

In addition to the €5000 research funding, the applicant will also receive an EVECC travel grant to present the research project proposal at the EVECC congress 2017, as well as a second travel grant to present the final results of the research at a subsequent EVECC congress.
