The goal of the EMBO Advanced Collaboration Grants is to support group leaders in participating countries, in EMBO subject areas, to engage in international collaboration to strengthen their laboratory’s research efforts.
The proposals should aim to reveal biological insight and should constitute joint projects with tangible objectives with the hosting laboratory. EMBO Advanced Collaboration Grants are research development grants with the intention to support high quality candidates to explore feasible collaborations to boost their research output.
Flexibility is at the foundation of the award. Therefore, the grant can be configured in different ways to best suit the collaborative needs. Funded applicants can claim up to six months support for international research exchanges, which can be taken either consecutively or in multiple visits.
Optionally, this award comes with a Scientific Consolidation Subsidy providing funding for an additional member of the home laboratory to work in the host group for up to three months (90 days) to help consolidate the collaboration.
