CED-IADR Travel Grant

The CED-IADR Travel Grant is a financial support for young researchers to attend the CED-IADR/NOF Oral Health Research Congresses. A jury will select the winners, based on the scores the abstract have received from the Scientific Committee.


In order to apply for a CED-IADR Travel Grant, you have to meet the following conditions:

  • Candidates must be a CED-IADR member (membership 2024).
  • Candidates must have their affiliation in the CED-IADR area.
  • Candidates should not be older than 35 years at the time of application.
  • Candidates must submit an abstract before the abstract-submission deadline.
  • Candidates need to be the first author and presenter of the abstract.
  • Candidates resident in the city of the congress, and surroundings, will be excluded.
  • Winners are requested to attend the General Assembly on The Friday of the congress.
  • A CED-IADR Travel Award can be received only once.

Once the candidates' abstracts have been accepted for presentation and included in the scientific programme, the CED-IADR awards committee will evaluate the abstracts on basis of the average Scientific Committee scores. Each abstract is usually evaluated by 2 Scientific Committee members. 

More information can be found at www.ced-iadr.eu/travel-grant.

Contact info for additional questions: ced.iadr@uzleuven.be

How to proceed

  • Submit an abstract at the CED-IADR/NOF Oral Health Research Congress (see Congresses) by using the online abstract submission site and check the box representing the respective award category you wish to compete in. 
  • Follow additional submission obligations described at the abstract submission site.

Once the notification for abstract acceptance was submitted to the presenters, the CED-IADR Board will make a selection out of all abstracts submitted for the competition. Travel Grant winners are selected on basis of the scientific quality of the abstract (and upon acceptance of the abstract by the congress Scientific Committee).

All applicants will be informed by email.


The prize money is around 300€ per person, depending on the number of candidates and the budget, which is determined per year by the CED-IADR Board.
