Advance your research project by winning up to 10,000 € of financial support from ESGE and guidance from our jury of experts
About the 'Den'
The ESGE Research Champions' Den competition, held at ESGE Days congresses, is the final stage of the application process for ESGE research grants.
The aim is to bring hidden talent to light and to help established researchers to share their ideas and upcoming projects with the endoscopy world.
The full details of the ESGE research grants can be found at esge.com.
10,000 € to cover direct costs is awarded to those judged most worthy.
Applicants selected by the jury to present their research at the ESGE Research Champions' Den receive a waived registration fee.
All studies that are presented at the ESGE Research Champions' Den are eligible to receive ESGE research endorsement.
How does it work?
Potential contenders submit their research idea online. A “jury” of experienced endoscopists with established track records in research select what they consider to be the best projects, based on the importance of their future impact on endoscopic practice and their creativity and originality.
At ESGE Days, the top selected applicants each have 3-4 minutes to present their projects to the jury, who then quiz each applicant for 5 minutes.
The session will be moderated by Pradeep Bhandari, the ESGE Research Committee Chair, who introduces applicants and moderates the session. Participation in this competition does not require onsite presence during the event.
After the jury’s discussion, the moderator announces which applicants have won financial support. The jury will be able to distribute, to the projects they judge to be most deserving of support, up to 10,000 €. All jury decisions are final.
Some of the action from last year…
It's Germana de Nucci now in the ESGE Research Champions Den. New hemostatic gel to treat bleeding. @mdinisribeiro is sceptical that this "treat all" solution is viable... Join the conversation!

Nice work on the moderation @gastro3570! #ESGEDays2021 live wrapping up soon but will stay on demand until 31 May. pic.twitter.com/SsQ0Iw9mXZ
Final potential research champion is Mo. @gastro3570 is curious that we have an innovator trying to bring EMR back to the forefront. Evelien is grilling Mo on cost effectiveness. Cesare: does it conflict with the ESGE guideline on the subject? Your thoughts? #ESGEDays2021 pic.twitter.com/Mv7XzPlrNO— ESGE (@ESGE_news) March 27, 2021
