Grants available for EMCRs to travel to France and Europe

March 25, 2019

The Academy has opened a call for applications from Australian early- and mid-career researchers (EMCRs) for the France and Europe Mobility Grants Program.

The EMCR mobility grants are intended to strengthen international research networks. They provide support of up to $5000 for Australian researchers to travel to France and Europe and work with leading researchers at major science and technology organisations for a period of between 14 and 28 days. The grants are supported by the Bede Morris and Rod Rickards memorial funds respectively.

The closing date for applications is 9 am (AEST) Monday 8 April 2019.

The Bede Morris Memorial Fund was established in honour of Professor Bede Morris FAA (1927–1988), one of Australia’s most distinguished medical scientists. The fund has been supporting Australian researchers to conduct research in France since 1990. The mobility grants are available for Australian EMCRs to conduct research in collaboration with a French research organisation in any field of the natural sciences. It is expected that 4–5 Australian researchers will be supported through this round of the fund. 

The Rod Rickards EMCR mobility grants were established in honour of Professor Rod Rickards FAA (1934–2007), one of the most important contributors to Australian science through his outstanding achievements in the chemistry of compounds of medical, biological, agricultural and veterinary importance. The mobility grants are available to support research projects conducted in collaboration with a European research organisation in the areas of chemistry or biology. It is expected that 10–12 Australian researchers will be supported through this round of the fund.

Candidates must have a PhD degree at time of application, with the degree having been conferred no more than 15 years prior to submitting the grant application.
