Applications for travel awards & fee waivers are now closed.

The Scientific Committee have selected the travel awardees based on the quality of the submitted abstract. Awardees will be notified in the first weeks of September.


Applications for the Symposium Volunteers Programme are now closed.

Thank you for applying to our Volunteers Programme. The selected volunteers will receive a confirmation email during the month of July.

We have a very limited number of spots for volunteers for the 2019 Champalimaud Research Symposium. Volunteers will receive free entrance to the symposium, and will help with different tasks such as registration, setting up poster stands and guiding participants. It may be necessary for volunteers to miss a small part of the symposium programme due to their duties, but we will accommodate as much as possible your preferences. 

Let’s create an exciting scientific event!
