The EHPS is pleased to announce that applications for Conference/CREATE Workshop/Synergy Expert Meeting/Bring a Stakeholder grants are now open.
Deadline for grant applications: Monday 22nd May 2023

The purpose of the conference/workshop grants is to encourage talented researchers and graduate students who do not otherwise have access to funding to attend the EHPS conference and/or the CREATE workshop or Synergy Expert meeting.

CREATE Workshop Grants

CREATE Workshop grants are intended for graduate students who plan to attend the CREATE workshop. Each grant is for a maximum of 1000 euros toward workshop registration, conference fee, accommodation, and travel.

Grant Selection Process

Please send your application electronically to the Grants Officer (

Applications will be dual reviewed by the Grants Officer plus a CREATE reviewer.
Decisions on acceptance/rejection of submitted applications will be acknowledged within three weeks after the deadline. A condition of funding is that successful awardees will be required to write an individual workshop report for potential publication in EHP. With regards to the workshop meeting report, this report will be separate to any joint conceptual or methodological output produced by the CREATE team. These awardee reports are to reflect on what was gained (academically and personally) through the EHPS Grant supported attendance.
The selection criteria are:
Relevance of the applicant’s work to the topic of the CREATE workshop.
Clear demonstration of financial need.
Potential of the fund to promote the career/research work of the recipient at this particular time.
Application documents:

Curriculum Vitae (max 2 pages).
For graduate students, proof of student status, such as a copy of your student ID.
An official statement from your employer or supervisor that no funding is being provided from the University or Institution and confirming the financial need.
