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 an increasing number 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. Applications for the next round of Meeting Organizer Grants are open until 1 December 2020. Members of any FEMS Member Society that are preparing to organize (or co-organize) an online microbiology event to be held between 1 June 2021 and 31 May 2022 are eligible to apply.
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’ as ‘Venue’.
Complete applications should be submitted on or before the deadlines:
- 1 December for meetings taking place between 1 June the following year and 31 May the year after that.
- 1 June for meetings taking place between 1 December that year and 30 November the following year.
