Professor Ida Martinson Project Fund

The founder of EAFONS, Professor Ida Martinson, has generously donated USD5000 in 2017 to support doctoral students to develop research collaborations with other EAFONS member states. The donation was matched by the School of Nursing of The Hong Kong Polytechnic University to create a project fund. Two projects were selected to receive the funding:
