The Donders Institute (DI) and the Brain and Mind Institute (BMI) are pleased to announce an internal call for proposals to support the exchange of senior researchers for collaborative research visits, to be performed during the duration of their employment.

The funding, secured primarily by the DI through the ErasmusProgramme, is intended to help establish new interactions between senior researchers at the Donders Institute and at Western University.

Visits of up to 12 days can be funded in a period from now until July 2020; longer visits are possible but require co-funding. Grants may be awarded up to the cost of the flight (up to €820) and a living allowance (€2740,- for a 12 day visit ), following the guidelines of the Erasmus program.
