Thanks to the generous support of EMBL’s corporate partners, nearly 800 scientists from 70 countries have received Corporate Partnership Programme fellowships – bolstering the Laboratory’s standing as the meeting place for young biologists in Europe and beyond.

 

EMBL is pleased to announce that fellowships to attend several scientific meetings and courses at the EMBL Advanced Training Centre will continue in 2016.

“The support from our Corporate Partners is tremendously important, especially for the many young scientists who can only attend our scientific events thanks to these fellowships.”

“The support from our Corporate Partners is tremendously important, especially for the many young scientists who can only attend our scientific events thanks to these fellowships,” says Jürgen Deka, Scientific Coordinator of EMBL’s International Centre for Advanced Training (EICAT). “Most of the selected recipients are in the very early stages of their scientific careers, and attending a course or conference at EMBL gives them the opportunity to meet and network with the best scientists in their field.”

Fellowship recipients are selected by the scientific organisers during the abstract review. They are awarded to outstanding young scientists who will make an important contribution to the EMBL Course and Conference Programme, and are specifically aimed at those from countries in need of scientific strengthening. For more information, including the application process and deadlines, please check the information for participants.

In 2016 the Corporate Partnership Programme is once again providing financial support for 10 to 15 awards of up to €1,500 each that will be bestowed through the Christian Boulin Fellowship programme. The fellowships cover the travel and accommodation costs of young scientists visiting EMBL Core Facilities at the different EMBL sites to learn and use the latest scientific techniques and thus advance their ambitious research projects.
