European Solidarity

Among other funding initiatives, the Committee is in charge of awarding financial support to early career researchers and organisers of events from institutions with a shortage of resources for mathematical research.

Terms of Reference

The EMS Committee for European Solidarity will undertake actions to reduce inequalities in the access to mathematical activities in research and higher education as well as to information in the geographical area of EMS membership, through the following means:

  • Awarding travel grants to qualified mathematicians without appropriate financial support, notably early career researchers (that is, 10 years after Ph.D. degree).
  • Funding training activities, such as advanced courses or workshops.
  • Supporting bilateral and multilateral regional conferences.
  • Easing access to research resources, including digital libraries, through travel grants.
  • Launching new scientific initiatives that might help achieve the goals of the Committee.

Travel grant applications

The EMS Committee for European Solidarity awards travel grants to qualified mathematicians without appropriate financial support, notably early career researchers (that is, 10 years after Ph.D. degree). These grants are for presenting results at conferences; for attending courses; for research stays in foreign countries to cooperate with colleagues and have access to libraries. The limit is normally 900 euros (for trips outside of Europe) or 500 euros (for trips within Europe). These grants are primarily for mathematicians based in countries of the geographical area of EMS membership.

The deadlines for applications are January 31 and September 30 and the decision will be communicated during March and November.

Please submit your application online

Applications for funding to organize training events and conferences

Funding is offered for the organisation of training events and conferences, normally up to a maximum of 3000 euros for each activity and it should be devoted to qualified mathematicians without appropriate financial support, notably early career researchers (that is, 10 years after Ph.D. degree).

The deadlines for applications are January 31 and September 30 and the decision will be communicated during March and November.
