JUMPstart Program 2020

Dear Applicant,

We are living in times where science and research have taken center stage in our everyday life. You, as a healthcare professional are pivotal in your hospital, clinics and/or research center, and might face limitations to attend a physical meeting, along with the rapidly changing travel restrictions in certain areas of the world due to the COVID-19 virus.

The digital era we live in, has allowed science to be borderless, that is the reason that the 2020 JUMPstart Program will be a completely virtual meeting, respecting social distancing measures and overcoming travel limitations.

The program dates will remain the same:

  • Basic Module:              January 30 & 31, 2021
  • Advanced Module:       March 27 & 28, 2021

Further information will be shared with the selected applicants. In case you have specific questions, feel free to reach us at  

The JUMPstart digital program will gather 20 participants from around the world and the JUMPstart Scientific Committee, led by Prof. Mette Berger (Switzerland), will equip you with profound insight into designing, budgeting, performing, evaluating and publishing clinical studies along with experience sharing based on their years of expertise in the field of clinical nutrition research.

All interactive modules will be led by the 5 members of the JUMPstart Scientific Committee. The digital interactive sessions will be packed with information on how to perform research in clinical nutrition with a special focus on Parenteral Nutrition in critical care and major surgery.

During the JUMPstart program you'll have the opportunity to further develop your research idea up to a solid study proposal and apply for the € 250.000 JUMPstart Research Grant to support your investigation. The research proposal can come from the following areas:

  • Basic research
  • Translational research
  • Clinical research

The travel* and accommodation* costs may be covered by Fresenius Kabi (subject to additional local laws, regulations, and industry code requirements specified in the JUMPstart agreement, which may require the participant to cover costs of travel and accommodation costs and/or pay a participation fee).

*Not valid for the virtual event. 

Healthcare professionals from the United States selected for JUMPstart must cover their own travel and accommodation costs and pay a $500 registration fee for participation in JUMPstart.
