ESF - Exploratory Workshops

(11 March 2005)

The European Science Foundation invites applications from prospective organisers of exploratory workshops across all scientific domains for 2006. These allow leading European scientists to meet to explore novel ideas at the European level with the aim of spearheading new areas of research.

Eligible domains include: medical sciences; life, environmental and earth sciences; physical and engineering sciences; humanities; and social sciences.

Awards will normally be for up to 30 participants for one to three days and be worth up to 15,000 euros, normally covering the costs of workshop activities and travel, accommodation and subsistence for European participants.

Applicants should be scientists and scholars from European universities and/or research institutes in countries having agencies which are member organisations of the ESF. Proposals may include co-applicants from other non-ESF countries.
