Travel Awards

The French Society of Developmental Biology and ITMO BCDE award between 5 and 10 travel grants to PhD students (2nd year of minimum PhD) or young post-doctoral students wishing to present their work at international conferences.

In 2018, two calls were closed on 15/01/2018 and 16/04/2018. A third call for 5 travel grants to attend the annual SFBD / SEBD / SPBD congress (Porto, 7-10 nov 2018) is in currently open (application deadline 31 July 2018)

The application (one pdf file) to be sent to sfbd@sfbd.fr must include :
- the application form (download below),
- a short CV along with the list of publications and previous participations to other meetings,
- a justification by the thesis supervisor / team leader of the funding requirement
- a short statement of the purpose and justification for the meeting
- information about the conference to be attended, and the communication or poster abstract to be presented (one page maximum in English).

NB : Although there is no obligation to join the SFBD when applying for the grant, the priority will be given to the members of our Society when applications are of equal ability. In all cases, students receiving the travel award are asked to join the SFBD and to display the SFBD logo during their presentation.

After the conference, a short text (1/2 page) relating some highlights of the meeting must be sent to us for publication.
Travel expenses and conference fees reimbursements will be handled after submission of the documented costs to the SFBD office : SFBD, CRBM, Campus CNRS, 1919 route de Mende 34293 Montpellier Cedex 05, France or to : sfbd@sfbd.fr
