Scientific Exchange Grants

Supporting international collaborations, enabling transfer of expertise

Applications accepted throughout the year



Travel costs and stipend

EMBO Scientific Exchange Grants contribute towards travel costs and subsistence of the fellow but not of any dependents. The subsistence rate depends on the country being visited. Research Exchange Grants do not provide additional funding for courses, conference travel, bench fees or overheads. EMBO does not cover visa costs.

Duration of support

The grants are intended for visits of one week (seven days) up to three months (90 days). Awarded applicants can stay on their research visit for an additional three months (maximum), however, EMBO will not provide funding for this extended period. It is possible to apply directly for more than three months (up to six), but the EMBO grant must be used for the first three months of the visit.
