In the Council Meeting which took place in Barcelona, Spain in May 2001, the councillors “proposed to award a travel grant to persons who submitted an excellent abstract. Generally, travel grants should be awarded to people from Eastern European countries because of their uneasy financial situation. When people from Eastern Europe will have no contact with the rest of Europe, it could be very difficult for them to do their job properly. Sponsoring them really is necessary.”
This initiative was to stimulate young scientists and medical students to obtain chances to investigate their fields of research and since then ESCI Travel Grants was established.
