The ESCMID CAREer Grant is aimed at ESCMID members working in the fields of clinical microbiology, infectious diseases and infection control who need support to advance their scientific career whilst looking after their children.
The ESCMID CAREer Grant, towards paying a support person (scientific/technical staff member or assistant), allows the recipient to reduce his/her work-time percentage from 100% to 80% or from 80% to 60%, thus providing more time for family duties. The grant contributes to the salary of a support person by financing him/her with the 20% of the gross salary (full-time, 100%) of the recipient for a maximum of 2 consecutive years. However, the entire grant may not exceed EURO 20’000/year.
