Scientific Mission Program

The Scientific Mission Program will support exchange programs of young researchers and is run in collaboration with EuPA. This program is dedicated for developing collaborative networks among the different EuPA member communities. Minimum 2 EuPA member Societies must support the proposal. BSPR will support applicants resident in the UK and Ireland. New collaborations, dedicated brief experimental sessions and training activities will be prioritized (congress participation is not an eligible activity).

 

To be considered for this program, you should send a synopsis of the research proposal together with a short CV to Karin Barnouin (kbarnouin@gmail.com ) and John Timms (john.timms@ucl.ac.uk). Successful applicants will receive a presentation letter stating the amount allocated (€500 maximum) signed by the legal representative from BSPR.

 

The full application to the Scientific Mission Program must be sent to the EuPA Secretary, Christian Kleinhammer (c.kleinhammer@aon.at ), no later than one month before the scheduled mission. Two letters of presentation from two EuPA societies (signed by the respective legal representatives) stating the amount allocated and synopsis (1 side A4 paper) of the research proposal should be produced by the applicant. Funds will be transferred to the successful applicant upon acknowledgment of the receiving institution of a letter stating the completion of the proposed activities. EuPA will subsidize this exchange program by matching the amount of the fellowship awarded to the young researcher by the supporting EuPA member Societies up to €1000.
