Travel grant for Junior members

EMAS will support the travel costs for junior members who wish to attend international meetings and congresses; or, for example, those who wish to visit laboratories for specific short-term activities, such as collaborative research, or in order to learn new techniques. This is subject to them meeting the assessment criteria for these awards. Applications are considered twice a year. The deadlines are 31 December and 30 June, 12 pm CET.  The maximum award is 1,000 EUR for economy travel.

Please note that travel must be completed within 1 year of the award date.

Successful applicants are required to submit a report to EMAS within 6 months of completion of the project and present their findings/data at the next EMAS congress.

Awards Committee

The EMAS Travel Award Committee considers applications twice a year. Applicants will be advised of a decision as soon as practicable after the deadline date. If a Board Member is one of the applicants, one or more persons will be co-opted to the subcommittee from outside the board to ensure independence. Unsuccessful applicants may re-apply once with the same project in the next call.

Who can apply

Junior members who have been part of EMAS for at least 12 months.

Multiple applications from the same institution are permitted, but applicants should note that multiple applications should be based on separate, distinct projects, none of which is dependent upon approval of the other. Applicants should also note that their multiple applications will, in essence, be competing against each other.
