To support parents wishing to attend one of its more than 90 scientific meetings, EMBO introduced new childcare grants this year.
Childcare grants cover childcare costs incurred by participants or speakers of a scientific meeting funded by EMBO. Applications and questions should be addressed to the organizer of the meeting.
Organizers of an EMBO Workshop or EMBO Practical Course can allocate funds to offset additional childcare costs incurred by participants or speakers when participating at an EMBO-funded meeting. Up to 1,000 euros are provided for each workshop or course in addition to the core funding awarded. Eligible costs include fees for a baby-sitter or childcare facility, travel costs for a caregiver, or travel costs for taking the child to the meeting. The selection is handled by the organizers of the meetings.
