Meeting Organizer Grants
Members of FEMS Member Societies can apply for our grants. FEMS supports selected meetings within the European Area with a Meeting Organizer Grant. Scientific conferences, laboratory workshops and training courses will be considered for such support.
As a umber of conferences, society meetings and congresses are moving into online events, FEMS has opened the Meeting Organizer Grants (MOG) to support both virtual* and in-person meetings.
The maximum amount of a Meeting Organizer Grant is € 15 000. The Meeting Organizer Grant replaces two of our former grants: National and Regional Congresses Grant and the Meeting Grants. You will find our Grants Regulations here.
A minimum of 60% of total grant value of the Meeting Organizer Grant is to be used to support the attendance of Early Career Scientists.
*If you are organizing an online event, on the application form please indicate ‘Online’ under the Event type question.
Complete applications should be submitted on or before the deadlines:
- 1 December 23:59 CET for meetings taking place between 1 June the following year and 31 May the year after that.
- 1 June 23:59 CET for meetings taking place between 1 December that year and 30 November the following year.
