EMBO Installation Grants support early-career scientists establishing independent laboratories in one of six participating EMBC Member States (Croatia, Czech Republic, Estonia, Lithuania, Montenegro, Poland, Portugal and Turkey) that fund their respective grantees.
At present call in 2021, Installation Grant applications are accepted by the Czech Republic, Poland, Portugal, Montenegro, Lithuania and Turkey* with the aim of strengthening the life sciences in these countries.
The Installation Grants were launched in 2006. Installation Grantees are selected annually on the basis of high-quality research, and, together with the EMBO Young Investigators, form a prestigious network of Europe’s up-and-coming life scientists.
To date, 114 scientists have been selected as Installation Grantees. Information about the projects that have been funded each year and their recipients is available in the EMBO Installation Grantee database.
