We would like to announce the 2016 call to support up to 7 proposals (€ 2.000 each) for staff research exchanges. The first round was held 2015.
The concept behind these exchanges is to facilitate further collaboration between NuGO member organisations. The grants will support travel and living expenses for scientists to travel to another NuGO laboratory and perform research for a period of greater than 2 weeks.
To apply for the exchange grants, please:
- Submit a one-page proposal outlining (1) the research to be performed and (2) the benefits of the exchange
- Submit a draft budget
Restrict yourself as NuGO member organisation to involvement in 1 incoming OR 1 outgoing exchange.
Upon completion of the exchange the researcher will be asked to submit a one-page report outlining the research performed and the key outcomes of the exchange.
Deadline for submission of applications for this 2nd batch of exchanges is 1st April 2016 (email@example.com).
The NuGO directors will make a pre-selection and submit their selection for approval to the Executive Committee. The outcome will be announced latest in May 2016.
The exchanges will have to take place in 2016 and ‘staff’ should be read as ‘staff with PhD degree’ but persons as senior technicians important in analytical work are not excluded.
For questions please do not hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Report PhD course: Introduction to Nutritional Metabolomics
Fifteen participants followed this course, of which 10 of NuGO partners. NuGO awarded grants to follow this course to:
* Anne Geijsen, Wageningen University
* Mirella Kalafati, University Maastricht
* Bastian Kochlik, Deutsches Institut für Ernährungsforschung Potsdam-Rebrucke (DIfE)
* Charlotte Michielsen, Wageningen University
Course report by Anne and Mirella:
The course “Introduction to Nutritional Metabolomics” was a very targeted and informative course. It most certainly met our expectations and gave us an elaborate introduction and hands-on experience on metabolomics analysis. We would like to express our gratitude to all the instructors for their patience, enthusiasm and their constant effort to provide answers to all our questions. We would definitely recommend this course to students who would like to learn about metabolomics and have no prior or basic experience with the field of metabolomics. Visit [course report].
