ESTS Committee for Research and Education - ESTS CRE

ESTS Council agreed to establish the Committee for Research and Education to promote research, scientific and educational activities among members.  This decision was approved by the General Assembly at the 18th European Conference on General Thoracic Surgery in Valladolid, Spain, 1 June 2010.

The Committee consists of five Past Presidents: Tomasz Grodzki, Semih Halezeroglu, Toni Lerut, Laureano Molins and Walter Weder.  The ESTS Secretary General and Treasurer are ex officio members of the Committee.  The Trustees of the ESTS Charity will have final responsibility of the funds collected in the ESTS CRE.

The purpose is to collect funds on the basis of voluntary donations by members of ESTS.

The application for Research and Educational Grants will open when sufficient donations have been made to the fund.  The aim of the fund is to support top class long term scholarships.

The members of the ESTS CRE will select a candidate or candidates based on their application for discussion and final approval by ESTS Council.

The Grant will be awarded at the gala dinner at the Annual Meeting

The names of ESTS members donating to the Committee for Research and Education will be listed yearly in the List of Members Book and Final Programme of the annual meeting.
