The FEBS Advanced Courses Committee invites proposals from expert scientists interested in organizing an event in 2025 with financial support from FEBS as part of next year’s FEBS Advanced Courses programme. Arranging such an event provides organizers with great opportunities for impact in their chosen field.

The final application deadline for 2025 events is 1 September 2024.

FEBS Advanced Courses take place throughout the area of Europe and neighbouring regions on important and timely topics in the molecular life sciences – in the form of Advanced Lecture Courses, Workshops, Practical Courses, combined Practical and Lecture Courses, and Special Meetings. The current course grants are as follows: FEBS Advanced Lecture Courses, €25,000; FEBS/EMBO Lecture Courses, €30,000; FEBS Workshops, €20,000; FEBS Practical Courses, €20,000; FEBS Special Meeting, €40,000. The events have a strong educational element, and as part of their application, organizers can also request financial support for attendance of a number of PhD students and postdoctoral fellows at the event through FEBS Youth Travel Fund (YTF) grants.
