How to apply for funding
All ERS members are eligible to apply for funding to set up an task force aiming to develop Clinical Practice Guidelines, Statements or Technical Standard Assessments.
The ERS accepts applications for new task forces twice a year:
- February 01
- June 01
Priority is given to projects aiming at developing official ERS Clinical Practice Guidelines. Consequently, proposals for Guidelines can be submitted by both deadlines, while applications for Statements and Technical Standards will be considered only at the June 01 deadline.
Important: only proposals fully filled in (including TF members' COI forms) will be reviewed. Applicant of an incomplete proposal will be asked to resubmit it at the next deadline. Should you have any question regarding the application form, please do not hesitate to contact the ERS Office prior to the deadline.
