The European Young Researchers’ Award (EYRA) is granted since 2010 to researchers demonstrating outstanding research performance and leadership. It aims to inspire early stage researchers to incorporate a European dimension and perspective into their research. This year’s call is dedicated to PhD candidates.
The next EuroScience Open Forum (ESOF) will be held in Toulouse from 9 to 14 July 2018. ESOF is a biennial interdisciplinary general science meeting and the highlight of the European science calendar.
EuroScience is very concerned about policies of several governments that undermine key tenets of science: open exchanges of ideas and people. The Executive Order by the US President that prohibits citizens from seven countries, including those having also e.g. a European citizenship, to enter the US jeopardises science and innovation by putting restrictions in place that run counter to core values of the science and education system, is the latest example.
The EYRA Selection Committee has unanimously recommended to share the European Young Researchers’ Award (EYRA) 2016 between Marta Entradas and Martijn Wieling. The EYRA Award ceremony will be held at ESOF in Manchester on 25 July 2016.
EuroScience has been given the opportunity by the Robert Bosch Stiftung to open a Call for Travel Grants to support African researchers (or exceptionally research administrators) with their travel, registration and accommodation costs to attend ESOF 2016 in Manchester.
