Overview

This section of the website presents the key funding opportunities for research support and for event attendance and organization.

Grants from FEBS to support research work fall into three categories:

  • FEBS Fellowships are stipends to support short research visits to a lab in another country in the FEBS area, and aim to facilitate research, training and mobility. Short-Term and Summer Fellowship schemes are for early-career scientists and students. Ukrainian Short-Term Fellowships are also available.
  • FEBS Booster Fund grants are to support projects over one-year led by newly independent academic researchers
  • FEBS Excellence Awards are funds to support the research costs of early-career group leaders who have a scientific research track record of proven excellence

The above pages lead to detailed guidance on eligibility criteria and how to apply.

The range of grants from FEBS for events are also set out in two parts in this FEBS website section:

  • Funding to support the costs of meeting attendance are available mainly to students and early-career researchers at FEBS-supported events. Mid/senior-career scientists from disadvantaged countries can access a support scheme at the FEBS Congress.
  • Funding for event organization is available to organizers for events to be run as part of the FEBS Advanced Courses, as well as for certain events organized by FEBS Constituent Societies. In addition, research institutes can apply for funding to host a FEBS-IUBMB-ENABLE event.
