About the webinar

As research is progressively occurring in the international arena, India is keen to align with international funding agencies that reflect this shift. This has opened the doors for Indian researchers, working in the field of life sciences, to a large number of international funding schemes.

IndiaBiostreams and Wellcome Trust/​DBT India Alliance presents a webinar series on International Research, Training and Mobility Grants Awareness Session to discuss these. We begin this series with a look at the EMBO funding schemes open to Indian life science researchers.

Join us for an informational session on EMBO Schemes open to Young Investigators from India featuring an introduction by Shahid Jameel (CEO, Wellcome Trust/​DBT India Alliance), presentations on the schemes by EMBO- Bettina Trueb (Senior Project Coordinator) and Gerlind Wallon (Deputy Director)- and personal insights from an EMBO Young Investigator- Minhaj Sirajuddin (PI, InStem). The topics discussed will include eligibility, benefits, themes and mentorship opportunities of these schemes. This will be followed by an interactive Q&A session.
