ESHRE Grant for research in reproductive medicine


ESHRE Research Grants are designed to support scientists and clinicians (investigators) by funding proposals in basic and clinical research in the field of reproductive medicine.

ESHRE will provide appropriate and adequate support to excellent scientists and/or clinicians, whatever their nationality, with the only restriction of them being an ESHRE member. Projects will be selected for funding based on scientific excellence, originality and feasibility. The applicant submitting the proposal will be the Coordinator of the project and s/he will be the main contact person for ESHRE.

The ESHRE research grants are awarded every other year. In 2020, ESHRE awarded a Research Grant of 75.000 euro to project on “Sperm Freezing and Function” and 200.000 euro to a project focusing on the theme “Protecting and Treating Male Fertility”.
The grant awardees are listed in the section “¨Past awards”. The call for proposals for the grant of 2022 will be launched in January 2022.

To support researchers gathering much needed knowledge on COVID-19 and its impact on MAR, an extra-ordinary grant cycle was run between August 2020 and April 2021.
