Submit Project Support Proposal
Do you have a project that you would like support for? If so, find out below how FEMS could help your project.
We have been working together with our Member Societies to support and increase the impact of a variety of activities, such as International Microorganism Day with the Portuguese Society of Microbiology, and the #EUROmicroMOOCs with the Spanish Society for Microbiology, which has now published details of its results.
What support is available?
- the use of our network to support with promotion, communication, and digital media
- connecting your project with experts, researchers, freelancers, and administrators
- support and advice with recruitment of volunteers and on volunteer management
Who can apply?
You can apply for support if you are a member of one of our Member Societies. These proposals will be reviewed by our Board to see which could be incorporated into the delivery programme.
How does it work?
These proposals will then be reviewed by FEMS Board of Directors who will determine which proposal will be accepted into our delivery programme.
When will I know if I am successful? When will the support for my project begin?
If successful, support for this project will begin in the year after the proposal is made and last for an initial period of 1 year. Assessment by the Board will then be made to determine whether continuation of support is suitable further.
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.
