Meeting Organizer Grants

Update of 2 May 2017 – Application for this grant is now open via the application form. However, as we are introducing a revised grants programme, not all online documents are available yet. We will announce the publication of these documents on this page and on the News section of this website.

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.

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.
