Scientists can apply for funding to organize an EMBO Workshop. EMBO can contribute up to a maximum of 41,500 euros (35,000 euros of core funding plus 5,500 euros exclusively for travel grants and registration fee waivers, and 1,000 euros for childcare grants) per workshop.
EMBO supports the organizers by:
- Creating a dedicated workshop webpage, including registration and abstract submission forms
- Providing a poster and helping to advertise the meeting
- Offering funds for an EMBO Young Investigator Lecture, EMBO Policy Lecture or an EMBO Women in Science Lecture.
EMBO offers travel grants for each event. Participants of EMBO Workshops should apply directly to the organizers for travel grants.
Organizers are encouraged to experiment with hybrid or virtual conference formats. An extra 10,000 euros will be provided if organizers choose a hybrid format to cover the additional cost incurred for providing the online options.
