The Louis-Jeantet Fellowship Programme finished in 2008.

From 1998 to 2008, the Louis-Jeantet Fellowship Programme helped to give outstanding young scientists from Eastern European countries the opportunity to join the EMBL International PhD Programme.

In 2008, the Louis-Jeantet Foundation together with EMBL decided that the overall situation and possibilities for Eastern European applicants had evolved so positively that further support was no longer necessary.

We wish to thank the  Louis-Jeantet Foundation for the excellent support of the programme and are delighted about the legacy of many excellent Jeantet fellows.
