PhasAGE – Excellence Hub on Phase Transitions in Aging and Age-Related Disorders


The PhasAGE Conference Fellowships (CFs) will support early-stage researchers (ESRs) and postdocs that are members of the PhasAGE project to present their research work at international scientific conferences not organized by the PhasAGE consortium, but whose topics are aligned with PhasAGE scientific scopes.

Each year, two or three CFs will be awarded to cover registration fees, travel and/or accommodation.

PhasAGE CFs will be granted by a scientific evaluation panel on a competitive basis according to the alignment of the conference topic with PhasAGE scientific aims and considering the quality of the research to be presented in the form of a poster or oral presentation by the applicant.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic situation and travel restrictions, CFs will exclusively cover the registration fees for participation in online conferences in 2021.
