EMBO Installation Grants aim to strengthen science in participating Member States by encouraging talented young researchers to establish independent laboratories in these countries. The Czech Republic, Estonia, Poland, Portugal and Turkey are participating in the 2016 call. Institutions and successful job candidates apply together to gain funding beyond normal start-up packages. The commitment and support of the receiving institute during and beyond the tenure of the grant is regarded as essential. This is meant to ensure continued support of the academic career of the recipient. Successful applicants receive an annual support of 50,000 euro for three to five years and benefits similar to those of the EMBO Young Investigator Programme. Installation Grantees are integrated into the EMBO Young Investigators network to benefit from the offered support.
