EMAS travel award
EMAS will support the travel costs for junior members who wish to attend international meetings and congresses; or, for example, those who wish to visit laboratories for specific short-term activities, such as collaborative research, or in order to learn new techniques. This is subject to them meeting the assessment criteria for these awards. Applications are considered twice a year. The deadlines are 31 December and 30 June 12pm CET. The maximum award is 1,000 EUR for economy travel.
Please note that travel must be completed within 1 year of the award date. Successful applicants are required to submit a report to EMAS within 6 months of completion of the project and present their findings/ data at the next EMAS congress.
How to apply
Email a completed application form, CV and letters of support from: 1] the member’s head of department and/or 2] the host institution to firstname.lastname@example.org for consideration by the EMAS board. A full justification for the sum requested must accompany the application.
Multiple applications from the same institution are permitted but applicants should note that multiple applications should be based on separate, distinct projects, none of which is dependent upon approval of the other. Applicants should also note that their multiple applications will, in essence, be competing against each other.
The EMAS Travel Awards Panel considers applications twice a year. Applicants will be advised of a decision as soon as practicable after the deadline date. If a Board Member is one of the applicants, one or more persons will be co-opted to the subcommittee from outside the board to ensure independence. Unsuccessful applicants may re-apply once with the same project in the next call.
