Support Students

Support medical research in Africa

MICCAI 2024 will be held in Africa for the first time and we are working towards having unprecedented participation of African researchers and students. Therefore, we are committed to supporting African students and early-career researchers who aspire to pursue careers in medical imaging and healthcare by providing them with the opportunity to attend MICCAI 2024. This experience will be an invaluable learning and networking opportunity, helping to shape the future of healthcare in Africa and beyond.

Unfortunately, limited funding in African research institutions all too often limits the ability of local researchers to attend major conferences such as MICCAI 2024. That's where you can make a difference.

We invite you, your colleagues, or your institutions to consider sponsoring the attendance of an African student at this year's MICCAI.

Our goal is to raise €10,000. Your generous donation, whether it's €20, €50, €100, €250, or even €500, will directly contribute to funding travel expenses, conference registration fees, and accommodations for these students.

By supporting this initiative, you are not only providing access to knowledge and resources that will benefit these students personally and professionally, but you are also contributing to the diversification of perspectives and expertise in the field of medical imaging and computer assisted intervention.
