Options for funding biophysical research
Instruct-ERIC offers open access to structural biology infrastructure at its Instruct Centres as well as training and Instruct Internships.
The successor of iNEXT (http://www.inext-eu.org) provides trans-national access to state-of-the-art infrastructures for structural biology, in the fields of X-ray crystallography, SAXS, NMR, EM, light imaging and (in NKI, Amsterdam, The Netherlands) Biophysics for Macromolecular Interactions. They also organize workshops.
The synBIOcarb European Training Network brings together a diverse team of chemists, structural biologists, biophysicists, cell biologists and protein engineers from across Europe who are pioneering the development of Synthetic Glycobiology.
Although funding from the European Commission, supporting the H2020-EUNCL project ended on 31st December 2019, the EUNCL infrastructure, along with its comprehensive analytical capabilities and harmonised SOPs, is still available.
EBSA offers bursaries to individual young scientists to participate in an EBSA-sponsored school, course or scientific meeting. EBSA also offers support for a working visit to a laboratory in an EBSA country.
EMBO offers financial support for scientists at all stages of their careers such as Fellowships, Young Investigators, Installation Grants and many others. See the EMBO website for the full list of support.
