In 2017, EuroMarine organises two distinct, parallel calls: 

  • A call for proposals of activities (targeting foresight workshops and working groups in 2017)
  • A call for application for individual fellowships (the present call, targeting EuroMarine PhD students and scholars in their first post-doctoral position, to let them attend an advanced course of their choice)


EuroMarine considers supporting capacity building for young scientists a key priority. Therefore, EuroMarine has launched a new Young Scientist Fellowship Programme focused on financially supporting individual early career scientists from EuroMarine Member Organisations to participate in training courses.

  • Fellowship Grant Description: A grant of up to €500 to contribute to covering direct costs related to participating in a training event. Eligible costs are participation fees and travel & subsistence expenses. If total participation costs exceed the grant amount, successful applicants must cover the additional costs from other sources. A minimum of 10 grants are available for the current call.
  • Training Courses Eligibility Criteria:
    • All training courses with topics relevant to the EuroMarine domain, both in Europe and globally. These can be courses organised by EuroMarine members or external courses.
    • Any type, on-site as well as e-learning/online courses.
    • There is no limit to the duration of the training course, but the course must run and be completed between 1 June – 30 November 2017.
  • Applicant Eligibility Criteria:
    • Young scientists: PhD students or individuals undertaking their first post-doctorate contract are eligible for this funding.
    • The young scientist must be a student or employee of a EuroMarine full Member Organisation (having committed to pay its 2017 contribution to the EuroMarine budget) or an Invited Member from one of the following countries: Morocco, Peru, South Africa, Tunisia, or Turkey. See the link below for more information on the Membership Status of EuroMarine institutes.
    • Only one application per individual per call. There is no limit on how many young scientists per organisation can apply but a maximum of three individuals from any one organisation can be awarded grants in any one call round. Only one grant per young scientist per 12-month period is possible.
