The application is available to anyone fulfilling the above criteria, without geographical restrictions.
The 200 best scored abstract presenters will be awarded a bursary of 650€ each. This bursary will be handed out during the congress. In addition, the registration fees to the congress will be waived and all bursary recipients will receive one year free EASL membership.
