Specialists in Training Access to Relevant Research Overseas and Worldwide


Ready to present your research to an expert panel?

Take a shot at an individual mentorship with a leading expert and a cash prize to boost your further career! **

For the past 4 years, GSK SPARROW supports upcoming researchers and clinicians with mentorships and networking opportunities. This year we again invite these researchers based in the Netherlands to send in an abstract in the field of respiratory research. Together with GSK, an Expert Panel will give five of them the opportunity to present their abstract at the Dutch Lung Congress of this year. The researcher/clinician with the most inspiring abstract and presentation gains an individual mentorship from a relevant Dutch expert and a cash prize of 2000 euros to spend on personal development, e.g. an internship or training/congress in your field. The winner also gets invited to take place in our expert panel for next year!

“It’s great that GSK initiates this kind of initiative because it supports young researchers and clinicians in their career path to become world-known scientists”
