Members of FEMS Member Societies can apply for grants for research and training, or for support when organizing or attending a meeting – including our Member Societies’ national and regional congresses. Every year we support meeting organizers and early career researchers and enable experts to share ideas and promote excellence in science. You do not need to be a member of a FEMS Member Society to apply for a Congress Attendance Grant.
Our 2015-2019 strategic framework extends our definition of microbiology research to include Member microbiologists in education, policy, business and scientific communication. Further information about the grant opportunities we provide, including application deadlines, can be found on the following pages:
