FEMS introduces support for Early Career Microbiologists caught up in the war in Ukraine”

The support is aimed at both Early Career Microbiologists (ECM)* who are members of the Ukrainian Society of Microbiologists and those of other FEMS Member Societies who are in Ukraine and caught up in the war. It is hope this can provide support for travel, accommodation, and some living costs to enable the grantee to undergo research and training at a European host institution (academic or industrial).

Full details can be found on our website and our news article has social media share buttons at the bottom of the page.


FEMS will also be posting on social media and via our newsletters to help promote the grant.

We would also like to encourage Member Societies to contact institutions and companies in their country to host potential applicants. Potential hosts can always share their opportunity by submitting to the FEMS Opportunities Board or directly by email.
