Return-To-Europe Fellowships are awarded to support outstanding scientists who, having left the European area for post-doctoral training elsewhere, wish to return to Europe for a post-doctoral position with a view to pursuing an independent research career.

There are two types of fellowships:

FEBS Long-Term Fellowships are awarded to support long-term visits for the purpose of scientific collaboration or advanced training. These Fellowships are originally granted for one year and may be renewed for a further year up to a maximum of three years.

FEBS Short-Term Fellowships are awarded for the purpose of scientific collaboration, advanced training or employing techniques not available at the candidates’ usual place of work.
