The ERA-EDTA has decided to give 90 virtual access grants to the authors of the highest scoring abstracts in the various categories in order to help them to attend the virtual congress. The Presenting Authors must be 40 years old or younger on December 31, 2020.

Help us help!

For the 2020  Congress 4 virtual access grants will be given to 4 young authors of accepted abstracts, thanks to the generous contribution of all the congress members who made small purchases (mugs, t-shirts, etc) at the ERA-EDTA shop during last year Congress.

Your help is essential for helping young nephrologists grow!

We “ASQ” for your help for young nephrologists living in low income countries

ERA-EDTA has circulated an electronic feedback questionnaire aimed at collecting impressions, suggestions and remarks from congress members of the last six ERA-EDTA Congresses.

Based on the final number of feedback questionnaires completed following the 2019 ERA-EDTA Congress in Budapest, ERA-EDTA will offer 4 special virtual access grants to young nephrologists living in low income countries (GPD USD 10,000) to attend the ERA-EDTA CONGRESS FULLY VIRTUAL. The winners will be chosen among those who have submitted an abstract that is then accepted for presentation at the congress.

This initiative, known as Altruistic Support by Questionnaire (ASQ), has become part of the exclusive ERA-EDTA advantages for young nephrologists living in developing countries all over the world where there is a greater need for education and scientific updates.

The Presenting Authors must be 45 years old or younger on December 31, 2020.


A 1-year free ERA-EDTA membership will automatically be given to the 30 people who have submitted an accepted abstract to an ERA-EDTA Congress. Only young people (40 years of age) who are already ERA-EDTA members (category B) as well as YNP members can receive this free ERA-EDTA membership.
