Grants for Scandinavian Exchange
SSI wants to promote new collaborations between Scandinavian researchers.
You are therefore also eligible to apply for a 1000 euro grant from SSI to finance exchange with a lab in another Scandinavian country. Both the applicant and the host lab PI should be members of SSI (members of the National Immunological Societies are automatically also SSI members). Applications should be sent by e-mail to Marit Inngjerdingen (firstname.lastname@example.org).
The application should include information on the place of exchange, duration of the stay including planned dates, a budget with the sum applied, a short description of the project as well as a motivation how this exchange promotes new collaboration. A letter of invitation from the hosting laboratory should also be included.
