EFI believes firmly in creating opportunities for young scientists and in international mobilisation to expand and exchange knowledge and experience. In this respect, EFI is excited to announce a new call for Short Scientific Visits 2019. Following two successful rounds of grants, EFI is again offering the opportunity for ten young researchers from EFI Associate and Affiliate Member organisations to visit another institution.
Short Scientific Visits provide a unique opportunity for interested candidates to get involved in international-level forest research and research cooperation. The main aims of the visit are to contribute to the scientific objectives of EFI and to strengthen the EFI network by facilitating young scientists to gain experience working in a different organisation in another European country, foster collaboration and learn new techniques, methods or tools not available in their own institution.
To gain more international visibility for their work, the successful grantees will also have the opportunity to participate in the 2020 Young Researchers Challenge, which is organised as part of the prestigious Marcus Wallenberg Prize event in Stockholm.
The proposed Short Scientific Visit should take place between 1 July 2019 and 30 April 2020 and should fall within one of the EFI priority research topics: bioeconomy, resilience or governance.
The application deadline is 27 March, 2019, 15:00 CET.
