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
The concept of working with pure cultures is deeply ingrained in the psyche of the microbiologist. But is this the only way? For example, there are many natural fermented product where mixed cultures are the norm: think of lambic beer, spontaneous wines and ciders, fermented dairy products and sourdough bread. Indeed, it is increasingly felt that interactions between microbes increase the metabolic potential of the community and give rise to more complex fermented products. FEMS Yeast Research is pleased to offer this set of minireviews that provide a current perspective on yeast ecology.
