EMSP 2016 Annual Conference: Bursaries for young people with MS


UPDATE: Our available bursary places have been filled. Due to limited resources, we cannot offer extra places. However we would be glad to register any young person interested to participate at the Conference, provided they can cover the related expenses themselves or through their national MS societies. 

We are pleased to announce that EMSP is once more offering a limited number of bursaries for young people with multiple sclerosis (MS) for our Annual Conference and Young People’s Conference – both taking place in Oslo, Norway, between 17 and 19 May 2016. The bursaries cover the registration fee, travel and accommodation expenses – if needed.

These are open to young people willing to participate and collaborate with EMSP and support our activities to better raise awareness of the challenges faced by young people with MS.

Please find all the Conference-related information here.

Young People’s Conference

We would like to encourage young people with MS to attend EMSP’s Young People’s Conference that will take place during our Conference: it will start on Wednesday 18 May and continue until Thursday 19 May. The Conference offers a unique opportunity to learn about current developments across Europe in the MS field and to network with a number of high-level experts in the MS community.
