Overview:

These grants are available to support research capacity building in developing parts of the world e.g. Eastern Europe, Africa and the Middle East.


The grants will support either a visitor from a developing country to a host laboratory in a non-developing country in order to learn methods. Alternatively, the grants will support a person based in a non-developing country visiting a developing country to assist with the set-up of research. The Visiting Fellowship should last between two and four weeks.

You can learn more about this opportunity by visiting the funder's website.

Eligibility:

    • The member applying for the visiting fellowship must not have received a visiting fellowship or general travel grant from the Biochemical Society within the previous two years on the closing date of the round that they apply to.
      • There must be an element of teaching during the visiting fellowship, for example, giving research seminars. Successful applicants will show detailed plans for the dissemination of the knowledge transferred, detailing how the knowledge will be transferred beyond the fellow or host lab to improve research in the developing country.  

      You must be a member of this organization to apply for this award - become a member. Either the applicant or the person hosting the visiting fellowship must have been a member of the Biochemical Society for over 12 months on the closing date of the round that they apply to.

      Preferences:

      • The committee will look favourably on applications that give a detailed strategy for dissemination of the knowledge to as many researchers as possible within the developing country.
