FEBS Courses 2008
One of the main goals of FEBS is to foster student training and mobility within the entire European research area.
The FEBS Advanced Courses Committee (ACC) provides financial support to organise courses covering relevant and timely scientific topics related to biochemistry, genetics, biophysics, molecular, cellular- and developmental biology, as well as systems biology.
The FEBS ACC provides about 400 Youth Travel Funds (YTFs) per year for young scientists. YTF grants fully support the attendance of young scientists (PhD students and postdoctoral fellows within five years after obtaining their PhD) at FEBS Courses and Workshops, covering both travel and any applicable registration fee.
YTF recipients must be members of a FEBS Constituent or Associated Society to be eligible. Additional funds are available to organisers to support two African students at each FEBS Course or Workshop.
YTF grants can only be obtained through the responsible course organisers and are available for all FEBS Courses and Workshops but not for FEBS Special Meetings.
All details about YTF grants are available in the Application Guidelines FEBS Courses/Wokshops main page.Read the list of 2008 Advanced Courses in this page.
