1) Objective

EMBO is an organisation of more than 1800 leading researchers that promotes excellence in the life sciences in Europe and beyond. The major goals of the organisation are to support talented researchers at all stages of their careers, stimulate the exchange of scientific information, and help build a research environment where scientists can achieve their best work.

EMBO Core Facility Fellowships fund international exchanges of up to one month between core research facilities in eligible countries. Core Facility Fellowships are intended for the training of core facilities staff, including scientists and technicians, in specific techniques used in core research facilities that provide services to research institutions or universities. The fellowships contribute towards travel plus subsistence of the fellow.

2) Eligibility

The applicant must be an active research scientist or technician working in a core research facility with at least one year of laboratory experience. There is no age limit. EMBO Core Facility Fellowships are awarded for training exchanges between institutions in EMBC Member States, Associate Member States or Cooperation Partners. EMBO Core Facility Fellowships are not awarded for exchanges between two institutions within the same country.

3) Location

Actions must take place in EMBC Member states: Austria, Belgium, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Montenegro, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Slovak Republic, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, and United Kingdom; EMBC Associate Member states: India, Singapore; or Cooperating partner country: Chile, Taiwan.

4) Budget

EMBO Core Facility Fellowships contribute towards travel costs and subsistence of the fellow but not of any dependents. The subsistence rate depends on the country being visited. The fellowships do not provide additional funding for courses, conference travel, bench fees or overheads. EMBO does not cover visa costs.

5) Application

There is no deadline for applications, however it is recommended to apply three months before the proposed starting date or, at minimum, applications must be submitted 30 days before the start date of the research visit.
