Educational Grants

EDUCATIONAL GRANTS

Since January 2018, MedTech Europe regulations have prohibited member companies from directly sponsoring physicians to attend third-party organized educational events.

Restricted educational grants may be provided to conference sponsors to help off-set registration, travel and hotel costs for participants wishing to attend to the congress.

 

SITE Santiago 2024 which will be held from October 3rd to 5th 2024 has been assessed by Ethical MedTech’s Conference Vetting System (CVS) and the symposium is provisionally compliant MedTech, for the moment (event ref. EMT36332).

 

Our Industry Partners can issue us with an educational grant and we, the congress organizer, will select recipients based on criteria set by the Industry Partner. Companies will be able to define the type of recipients eligible for the grant but not name individual recipients.

 

Grants will cover the cost of registration, accommodation during the conference, and travel expenses.

Educational grants must be publicly disclosed, ensuring increased transparency of funds allocated to medical education.

Educational Grants will be available to sponsor your registration fee, transport and/or accommodation expenses.

You won’t be covered for your accommodation if your home address is less than 50km away from the symposium venue.

The grant can cover up to 3 nights. If you need to book additional nights or wish to book a double room, all the extra fees will be at your charge.

Past 60 days before the event, it will be possible to amend your accommodation providing there is availability. This cost will be at your charge.
