European Molecular Biology Organisation.
European Molecular Biology Organisation (EMBO) promotes excellence in the life sciences in Europe and beyond. The major goals of the organisation are to support talented researchers at all stages of their careers, stimulate the exchange of scientific information, and help build a research environment where scientists can achieve their best work.
EMBO is adding activities to its programmes and launching new funding schemes for researchers based in or going to one of the nine eligible countries, including Luxembourg.
For the next three years, life scientists in or going to Croatia, Czech Republic, Estonia, Italy, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Poland, Slovenia, and Turkey are eligible to apply to these schemes.

Applications will be open by December 2021.
