Meeting Organizer 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. 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.
