The Peter Baskett Bursary was established as a mark of honour to the late Peter Baskett. Peter was a Founding Member and a Chairman of the ERC. He introduced ERC courses and education in many countries in Europe and considered the education of ERC instructors of paramount importance. Peter’s vision was to develop the talents, particularly of younger potential instructors, thereby improving resuscitation across Europe and in the rest of the world.
The ERC, together with the Laerdal Foundation, established a bursary in order to make it possible for ERC instructors from countries with a lower Gross National Income or those not being able financially to participate in ERC congresses.
The Peter Baskett Bursary is available for all ERC congresses, as long as funds are available.
The Bursary includes the following costs:
The Peter Baskett Bursary is open to all active ERC instructors, residing or working in a country which has an Agreement or Memorandum of Understanding with the European Resuscitation Council. Applications from countries with a low Gross National Income per capita have a high priority.
Applications must be submitted in writing (English) to the ERC Office by e-mail ([email protected]) and should contain:
Applications that meet the criteria:
Will be considered by the Bursary Committee, based on the following arguments:
The Bursary Committee will make a recommendation of maximum 3 persons to the ERC Board. The ERC Board will take a final decision and grant up to three instructors with a bursary.
All applicants will be informed if their application was admissible and whether it was granted. The discussions of the Bursary Committee and the ERC Board are considered confidential. No appeal is possible to the Board’s decision.
To be reimbursed for the travel costs, the beneficiary effectively has to have attended the congress and has to send the original cost receipts to the ERC Office. If unable to attend, the ERC Board has the power to grant exception.
