Short-Term Fellowships fund research visits of up to three months to laboratories in Europe and elsewhere in the world. The aim is to facilitate valuable collaborations with research groups applying techniques that are unavailable in the applicant’s laboratory.
Short-Term Fellowships are not awarded for exchanges between two laboratories within the same country. Short-Term Fellowships are intended for joint research work rather than consultations.
Funding & Duration
The fellowships cover travel plus subsistence of the fellow but not of any dependents. The subsistence rate depends on the country being visited. Short-Term Fellowships are intended for visits of 1 week up to 3 months.
For applicants from laboratories outside the EMBC Member States the duration is fixed to 90 days.
Applicants should either be scientists who obtained their PhD degree (or equivalent) within the last 10 years or pre-doctoral scientists (PhD students). However, candidates with very little research experience will be given lower priority for funding.
There is no deadline for applications, however it is recommended to apply three months before the proposed starting date.
