JRC Malta Young Scientist Award
The Malta Council for Science and Technology (MCST) is receiving proposals under the JRC Malta Young Scientist Award. The aim of this award is to showcase the efforts of Maltese young scientists to the JRC.
The Joint Research Centre (JRC) is the European Commission’s science and knowledge service which provides independent scientific advice and support to EU policy. Its work has a direct impact on the lives of citizens by contributing with its research outcomes to a healthy and safe environment, secure energy supplies, sustainable mobility and consumer health and safety.
JRC Awards will be selected by MCST through a two phase process. Six young scientists from Malta (one per each thematic unit) will be selected for the award. They will visit the JRC Ispra site for 2.5 days in May or June 2017. The JRC Award will cover the costs for the flight and accommodation for the respective visit. The event programme will include;
• A general overview of JRC as the science and knowledge service of the European Commission,
• Presentation of the visitor’s projects to JRC scientists,
• “Shadowing” of a JRC scientist according to the individual fields of interest,
• Visits of some of the main JRC laboratories in Ispra,
