Funding for lecture courses for scientific exchange beyond European borders

The deadlines for applications are 1 March 2024 and 1 August 2024, 12:00 noon CE(S)T


EMBO Global Lecture Courses enable scientific exchange beyond European borders. They teach participants, primarily PhD students and postdoctoral researchers, about a particular topic in the life sciences. The courses should provide participants with background and underlying concepts, thereby making the topic accessible to scientists with diverse scientific backgrounds.

The lecture courses can include up to 120 participants and last between three and ten days to provide sufficient time for discussion groups, poster sessions and journal clubs.

They can take place in EMBC Associate Member States, in countries and territories with which EMBO has signed a co-operation agreement, or in countries eligible for support by EMBO and The Company of Biologists. Details can be found here.

Please note that for lecture courses taking place in India, organizers should apply for an India | EMBO Lecture Course.

EMBO Global Lecture Courses can be conducted in person only, virtually only or in a hybrid format.
