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.
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.
Complete applications should be submitted on or before the deadlines:
- 1 June 2018 for meetings taking place between 1 August 2018 and 31 July 2019
- 1 December 2018 for meetings taking place between 1 April 2019 and 31 January 2020
