Detall de la convocatòria


Objectiu de la convocatòria
For junior researchers pursuing experimental projects in basic biomedical research and who wish to pursue a short-term research stay or attend a practical course of up to 3 months.
Característiques principals
Applicants for a Boehringer Ingelheim Fonds (BIF) travel grant must currently pursue an experimental project in basic biomedical research aimed at elucidating basic biological phenomena of human life and acquiring new scientific knowledge.
We fund PhD students or medical students during their doctoral thesis as well as postdocs. In addition, we support research visits of graduates who have applied for a PhD project abroad, but who have not yet worked with their potential PhD supervisor (hereafter called PhD candidates).
We award travel grants to European citizens working in Europe and overseas, and to non-European citizens who perform their MD, PhD or postdoctoral project in Europe, or will use the travel grant to work in Europe.
