The goal of the EMBO Advanced Collaboration Grants is to support group leaders in participating countries, in EMBO subject areas, to engage in international collaboration to strengthen their laboratory’s research efforts. The proposals should aim to reveal biological insight and should constitute joint projects with tangible objectives with the hosting laboratory. EMBO Advanced Collaboration Grants are research development grants with the intention to support high quality candidates to explore feasible collaborations to boost their research output.
