03 Jul 2019


This past Friday, 28 June 2019, the British Journal of Anaesthesia (BJA) charity and the European Society of Anaesthesiology (ESA) came together in Brussels, Belgium to sign the BJA & ESA International Research Grant Agreement. This research grant of €100.000, equally funded by both the ESA and BJA, is intended to help institutions and individual researchers to perform research in the field of Anaesthesia, Perioperative Medicine, Intensive Care, Critical Emergency Medicine and Pain and is open to any academic institution located in one of the countries represented in the ESA Council. The winner will be announced during Euroanaesthesia 2020 in Barcelona, Spain.


We are proud to collaborate with the BJA for the creation of this grant. We believe this agreement is an excellent example of different associations coming together to fund international research and we look forward to the results this collaboration will help facilitate. 


Applications for this grant will open 2 September and close 31 October 2019.
