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
BIF travel grants support junior scientists who want to learn clearly-defined methods useful for their ongoing research and their current laboratory by:
  • Visiting another laboratory
  • Attending research-orientated courses with the practical part making up at least 50 % of the course.
    They can also be used by PhD candidates and their potential supervisors to evaluate the scientific and personal fit before the start of a PhD project in another country by funding a research stay of one to three months in the supervisor’s laboratory.
