Detall de la convocatòria


Objectiu de la convocatòria
The Human Frontier Science Program (HFSP) is a niche program that supports innovative basic research into fundamental biological problems with emphasis placed on novel and interdisciplinary approaches that involve scientific exchanges across national and disciplinary boundaries. The participation of scientists from disciplines outside the traditional life sciences such as biophysics, chemistry, computational biology, computer science, engineering, mathematics, nanoscience or physics has made biological research increasingly quantitative and will continue to do so. Such collaborations have opened up new approaches for understanding the complex structures and regulatory networks that characterize living organisms, their evolution and interactions.
Característiques principals
Types of award:
  • Young investigators’ Grants: General aims: It is to be expected that outstanding young scientists, in the initial period of their independent careers, are in a particularly good position to formulate innovative and fertile research projects.
  • Program Grants: General aims: Program Grants are meant to allow teams of independent researchers to develop new lines of research through the collaboration.

  • The Principal Applicant of a Research Grant must have a laboratory in a member country (with the exception of HFSP Career Development Awardees – see section 4.2. of the Guidelines).
  • All team members are expected to direct a research group (however small). The HFSP award is not intended to create scientific independence, this is a decision of the research institute prior to the application.
  • Young Investigators’ Grants: all members of a Young Investigators’ grant team must be within 5 years of obtaining an independent position but must have obtained their first doctoral degree (PhD, MD or equivalent) not longer than 10 years before the deadline for submission of the letter of intent.
  • Program Grants: all members of a Program Grant team must be in a position to initiate and direct their own independent lines of research. They must have responsibility for their own laboratories and show evidence of independence. “Postdocs” are not eligible to apply.
