EMBO awards Installation Grants to 7 European scientists
Date:12/5/2011

HEIDELBERG -- EMBO today announces the selection of seven scientists as recipients of the 2011 EMBO Installation Grants. The grants will assist the researchers to relocate and set up laboratories in the Czech Republic, Poland, Estonia and Turkey.

"The EMBO Installation Grants directly support young scientists in countries actively developing fundamental research capacity," said Gerlind Wallon, Installation Grants Programme Manager and EMBO Deputy Director. "The grants benefit not only the talented scientists who receive support but also the countries where they establish laboratories."

A committee of EMBO Members selects the successful candidates for the high standard of their research. "By helping these scientists set up their research laboratories in the participating countries, EMBO hopes to improve the competitiveness of these countries in European science," said Wallon.

The scientists receive 50,000 euros annually for three to five years from their host countries. This helps them to establish their research groups and themselves in the European scientific community.

Grantees are also integrated into the prestigious EMBO Young Investigator Programme, which provides networking opportunities with some of Europe's best young group leaders and a range of career development programmes.

With these newly elected grantees, the number of researchers funded by EMBO Installation Grants since the inception of the programme in 2006 increases to 48. Three of the new grantees will move from the USA to establish research groups in Turkey, one moves from Germany to Poland, one from the UK to the Czech Republic, one from the USA to Estonia and one from the USA to Poland. Three of the seven scientists are women.

The awardees are Tolga Emre (Turkey), Ebru Erbay (Turkey), Nurhan zl (Turkey), Kvido Střovsk (Czech Republic), Tambet Teesalu (Estonia), Bartosz Wilczyński (Poland) and Dorota Wloga (Poland).
