Updated version as of 28 July 2020 –Until the end of 2021, two of EMBO's Fellowship Programmes will consider applications for scientific exchanges involving institutes in Japan and institutes in an EMBC Member State, EMBC Associate Member State or a country or territory covered by a cooperation agreement with the EMBC.

This update applies to EMBO Short-Term Fellowships and EMBO Core Facility Fellowships. EMBO Short-Term Fellowships promote international research exchanges between laboratories in order to facilitate valuable collaborations with research groups applying techniques that are unavailable in the applicant's laboratory. EMBO Core Facility Fellowships, newly launched in February, support international training exchanges between core research facilities that provide services to institutes and universities.

Fellowship applications are accepted on a rolling basis. Further information on eligibility criteria and how to apply can be found at (Short-Term Fellowships) and (Core Facility Fellowships).
