Meeting Attendance Grants
Members of FEMS Member Societies can apply for our grants. Meeting Attendance Grants enable early career researchers to attend microbiology meetings worldwide to network, collaborate and keep abreast of new developments in their field. Support is limited to a maximum of € 600.
Applicants should be active microbiologists, having obtained their highest degree less than five years prior to the application deadline date or be a PhD student. They should be a member of a FEMS Member Society and a presenting author (oral or poster) at the meeting. Applications to attend FEMS-sponsored meetings will not be considered as applications for support to attend these meetings should be made directly to the meeting organizer.
Complete applications should be submitted on or before the deadlines:
- 1 March for meetings that will be held within a year from the following 1 May
- 1 September for meetings that will be held within a year from the following 1 November
This Thematic Issue of FEMS Microbiology Letters contains eight papers based on oral presentations or posters presented at the 12th International Conference on Halophilic Microorganisms – Halophiles 2019, in Cluj-Napoca, Romania. The location for the event recognizes the great diversity of hypersaline environments in Romania and the rich history of the exploration of the microbial diversity in those environments. This Thematic Issue explores the latest developments on the microorganisms living in these unique environments.
