European Molecular Biology Organization (EMBO) and the Wellcome Trust/DBT India Alliance (IA) jointly fund up to three meetings per year in India. The meetings should address discovery and innovation through an interdisciplinary approach, with the speakers and participants discussing important global challenges in the context of the life sciences.
The Wellcome Trust/DBT India Alliance (IA) and EMBO are looking to fund interdisciplinary meetings that cover the latest developments in research areas under-served in India. These meetings should address discovery and innovation through an interdisciplinary approach, with the speakers and participants discussing important global challenges in the context of the life sciences.
The meetings should be small, with 10 to 15 highly acclaimed international speakers and 50 to 75 participants, allowing early to mid career scientists to interact with leading international experts during a period of three days.
Proceedings from the meeting should be drafted as a position paper to advise the India Alliance regarding this area of research. The paper should in particular outline if and how research covered by the meeting could be beneficial to India. India Alliance may consider increasing funding for research in that area following expert advice and review.
The maximum funding available for an India / EMBO Symposia is 60,000 euros.
EMBO also supports the organizers and meeting in the following ways:
Applications for India / EMBO Symposia must be submitted through the online system. Organizers should apply at least 6-12 months before the proposed date of the meeting.
