PCISBIO Day 2020

Message from the Organizing Committee:

With the current situation of the coronavirus pandemy, the Organizing Committee of PCISBIO decided to postpone the meeting until late spring of 2021.

We hope to keep the agreed program, or if necessary, revise or settle a new one as adequate.

The main purposes of this meeting are:

Instruct Internships

The Instruct Internship Programme funds research visits of 3-6 months duration to Instruct Centres in Europe. The aim is to facilitate valuable collaborations with Instruct research groups applying techniques that are not available in the applicant’s laboratory. Applications should specifically focus on the benefit to the applicant’s research. Internships may be hosted at any institution that hosts an Instruct Centre, providing the applicant is a resident of a different full Instruct member country at the time of making the application.

R&D Pilot Project Awards

From time to time, Instruct publishes calls for small scale pilot research projects in integrated structural biology. Resources are allocated to support a limited number of pilot studies proposed by researchers from Instruct member countries. Pilot projects may be funded up to a maximum of €15,000. The funds are expected to cover research expenses but not normally salaries. The intent of this support is to help researchers develop external funding for projects, i.e. the expectation is that a pilot study will lead to a grant submission to national or international funding bodies.
