The grants & awards season is unfolding - the call for the Individual Research Grant will open in two weeks on 20 June 2024.


ESCMID research grants help in nurturing the next generation of researchers starting out in CM and ID, marking an important start in their journey of research funding. These grants offer a unique opportunity to explore Bacterial Infections & Diseases during even years and Fungal/Viral/Parasitic Infections & Diseases during odd years.




Check out the ESCMID Mentorship programme

To facilitate professional development, ESCMID encourages mentorship. Our mentors sit within the ESCMID Mentorship Centre (EMC), offering support and guidance to their mentees. Through this programme, our objective is to give ESCMID members a unique opportunity to meet skilled professionals in their field, gaining valuable insight into research and career development. Applications are open throughout the year.


Participants from the ESCMID AMS and EUCIC Certificates have completed the programmes

During ESCMID Global 2024, we celebrated the graduation of trainees from the third EUCIC Certificate cohort and the inaugural AMS Certificate cohort.


These dedicated professionals have completed rigorous training programmes, enhancing their skills and knowledge in infection prevention, control, and antimicrobial stewardship. EUCIC graduates are now well-equipped to implement effective infection control measures, while AMS graduates are ready to lead efforts in optimising antimicrobial use and combating resistance.
