Call for ‘science and society’ activity/event proposals from FEBS Constituent Societies
As part of its societal remit, the FEBS Science and Society Committee runs a science and society session at the FEBS Congress, which in 2019 explored the topic of personalised medicine; see the introduction to the session on the FEBS Network for more details. The committee would like to build on this and reach a wider audience and to this end here announces a call for proposals from FEBS Constituent Societies to run a science in society event or activity under the same theme.
The exact format of the event/activity is up to the organizing society and the committee would like to support a range of activities from speaker events to educational activities, including for public engagement on this issue. Up to €2000 is available from FEBS to support this activity. Events or activities which involve more than one FEBS Constituent Society or which enable the sharing of an activity across FEBS Constituent Societies are encouraged.
Societies who wish to apply should check further guidelines here and submit a 1-page outline of their event/activity along with the proposed budget by 11th October 2019. Please note that applications must come from or be endorsed by a FEBS Constituent Society and are limited to one application per FEBS Constituent Society.
