The major goals of the organization are to support talented researchers at all stages of their careers, stimulate the exchange of scientific information, and help build a European research environment where scientists can achieve their best work.
Degree Level: EMBO Short-Term Fellowships fund research visits of up to three months to laboratories in EMBC Member States and worldwide.
Subject Offered: Fellowships are awarded for a specific research project in a particular host laboratory.
