Fully Funded EMBO Short-Term Fellowship
Short-Term Fellowships fund research exchanges of up to three months between laboratories in eligible countries. The aim is to facilitate valuable collaborations with research groups applying techniques that are unavailable in the applicant’s laboratory. Short-Term Fellowships are not awarded for exchanges between two laboratories within the same country. Short-Term Fellowships are intended for joint research work rather than consultations. The fellowships cover travel plus subsistence of the fellow only and not of dependents.
Duration of support
Short-Term Fellowships are intended for visits of 1 week (7 days) up to 3 months (90 days).
Travel costs and stipend
The fellowships contribute towards travel costs and subsistence of the fellow but not of any dependents. The subsistence rate depends on the country being visited.
End of fellowship report
At the end of your fellowship applicants are asked to provide EMBO with a report of their activity at the host institute. The report should be sent to [email protected].
The final report must be submitted to the fellowship office within 6 months of completing the research visit. The report should be about two pages, and should summarize the results as well as possible plans for further work to be undertaken. It may include diagrams, charts or illustrations. Upon receipt of the final report, the EMBO office will send a certificate stating the start date and duration of the fellowship, the place the place where it was held, the ASTF number and the title of the project developed.
Together with the final report, applicants must provide a letter signed by their home institution certifying that they have returned to work there for at least 6 months after the completion of the EMBO Short-Term Fellowship.
