This award seeks to foster international scientific collaboration and development of human resources across different IBRO regions. The main goal of the award is to facilitate collaboration between a) two emerging research groups from two different IBRO regions or b) one emerging and one established research group from two different IBRO regions.
The exchange must include bi-directional travel of Principal Investigators, postdocs and/or students that plan to work on the scientific collaboration defined in the project application. The exchange must occur within a two-year period.
Awards up to 6,000 USD will be awarded to cover the costs of travel, accommodation, subsistence, and research between the two groups. Two awards per IBRO region will be granted (ARC, APRC, LARC, PERC, USCRC).
- Applicants must have been Principal Investigators for seven years or less. Any extended breaks from research, e.g. maternity, paternity or adoption leave is accepted and should be justified in the application.
- At least one research group should be an emerging laboratory.
- At least one research group should be a basic neuroscience laboratory.
