Awards will cover the costs of travel, accommodation, subsistence and research between the two groups.

Fellowship Specifications:

  • The collaboration must include bi-directional travel of principal investigators, postdocs and/or students that plan to work on the scientific collaboration defined in the project application
  • The defined collaboration must be completed within two years from the collaboration start date
