UPDATE 22 JUNE 2020 | As an increasing number of conferences, society meetings and congresses are moving into online events, FEMS has opened a dedicated round of Online Meeting Organizer Grants (MOG) to support these virtual meetings. Applications are open from Monday 22 June to Sunday 12 July 2020. Members of any FEMS Member Society that are preparing to organize (or co-organize) an online microbiology event to be held between 6 September 2020 and 10 July 2021 are eligible to apply. Support of up to EUR 3000 per event is available.
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 definition of fields that grants can apply to includes microbiology research, education, policy, business and scientific communication. Further information about the grant opportunities we provide, including application deadlines, can be found on the following pages:

Many of the most serious human infectious agents are either derived from the wider environment or have environmental reservoirs. In this Thematic Issue from FEMS Microbiology Letters, we explore the underlying biology, transmission cycles and risk factors for a breadth of microbes, presented as a series of original research and mini-reviews.
