Regional Young Investigators’ Meetings Grants 2024– 2025

IndiaBioscience, TIFR - NCBS →


With an aim to continue the impact of the RYIMs across India, IndiaBioscience invites applications from Regional Young Investigator Teams for the Regional Young Investigators’ Meeting Grants (RYIM Grants) 2024 – 2025. The RYIMs are intended to be Young Investigator (YI) driven endeavors that will promote the ethos of YIMs in local scientific communities, and foster collaborative leadership among YIs in the region. 

A RYIM team will comprise a YIM alumni (as lead organiser) along with 2 – 4 co-organisers from across research institutes, organisations or universities in the region. The lead organiser (YIM alumni) should have attended a previous national YIM as a Young Investigator. The co-organisers may or may not have attended a previous national YIM. We strongly encourage RYIM teams to be diverse groups of YIs (gender, institutes, research fields), across scientific expertise and demographics, and represent a range of host institute types (national, central, private, university). 

The RYIMs will be in-person meetings (typically 1 – 3 day events) at a local institute or university (represented by one of the RYIM team organisers), with a substantial presence of scientists and science professionals from across the region. The regions are broadly defined as North, East, West, South, Central and North-East India, but could be extended to other descriptions of local and regional scientific communities. IndiaBioscience will provide seed funding of up to INR 1.5 lakhs for each selected RYIM. In addition, this year RYIM organisers can request top-up funds of INR 15000 towards supporting childcare grants for organisers and participants as part of the IndiaBioscience childcare grants program for meetings.

The RYIM Grants aim to facilitate the organisation of local meetings for YIs and science professionals, by the RYIM organising team, in the spirit of collaboration, team-work and fun!
