Participants of NDPIA are encouraged to apply to courses linked to infections and antibiotics provided by the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL), link to EMBL courses. If doing so, participants should consider mentioning their affiliation to NDPIA and MIMS – the Swedish node of the Nordic EMBL Partnership for Molecular Medicine – when applying for courses/workshops at EMBL since this might result in a more favourable judgement of applications (see suggested wording below).
If accepted to a relevant EMBL course of 2-5 days, NDPIA participants can apply for NDPIA co-funding for up to 10 000 SEK covering costs for registration fee, travel and accommodation. Link to NDPIA application.
After having participated in an EMBL course with NDPIA co-funding, the recipient should submit a form including details on the course, learning outcomes, their opinion of the course etc. Link to follow-up form. This is a prerequisite for receiving the granted NDPIA co-funding, to be requested by filling out one of the following forms:
Form for NDPIA members employed by Umeå University
Form for NDPIA members not employed by Umeå University
Suggested wording to complement a well motivated application:
“….. I am also a member of the National (Swedish) Doctoral Programme in Infection and Antibiotics (NDPIA) which is coordinated via MIMS (Molecular Infection Medicine Sweden), the Swedish node of the Nordic EMBL Partnership for Molecular Medicine.”
