To support the participation of young researchers to attend transatlantic conferences and offer them the opportunity to broaden their network outside the national-regional scope, the EFMC Young Scientists Network (YSN) and the ACSMEDI Young Medicinal Chemists Committee (YMCC) decided to fund a joint grant.
Up to two grants of 1500€ covering economy flight and up to 3-nights accommodation will be awarded to facilitate attendance to ACSMEDI|EFMC Medicinal Chemistry Frontiers. The prizes will be allocated to European researchers when the conference takes place in the United States, and to American researchers when the conference takes place in Europe. In addition, the awardees will be garanteed a poster presentation, and will be offered the opportunity to apply for an oral communication.
The upcoming edition of the ACSMEDI|EFMC Medicinal Chemistry Frontiers will take place in Boston, United States on June 10-13, 2023.
