A maximum of 1200 euro is available to go towards the stakeholders’ conference fee, accommodation, travel, and subsistence. Applications must be led by the academic collaborator, with the stakeholder as a named co-applicant.

Reviewing: Conference grant applications will be reviewed by a committee led by the Grants Officer and with a Synergy reviewer and a CREATE reviewer.

CREATE and Synergy grant applications will be dual reviewed by the Grants Officer plus either the CREATE or Synergy reviewer respectively.

‘Bring a Stakeholder’ grant applications will be reviewed by the Grants Officer and the EHPS Executive Committee President or President-Elect.

A condition of funding is that successful awardees will be required to write (a) a collective conference report for potential publication in European Health Psychologist (EHP) facilitated by the EHP Editorial Team and (b) a 300-500-word individual short report on how the grant helped with their career or their networking opportunities. These awardee reports are to reflect on what was gained (academically and personally) through the EHPS Grant supported attendance.
