EASL will grant bursaries only to the presenting authors who will attest that they are not being sponsored or covered by any other source in order to attend the EASL event.  


If you have been awarded a bursary for a poster presentation it is mandatory to sign in at the poster help desk to validate and confirm your bursary. It is also compulsory for bursary recipients to stand in front of their paper poster during lunch time for the faculty poster walk. Failure to comply with these instructions will result in a non-payment of the bursary. 

The payment of the bursaries to presenting authors will be processed after the congress by bank transfer.
