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. A number of young scientists from Malta will be selected for the Award. They will visit the JRC (most likely the Seville site) for 2-3 days. Envisaged timeframe is autumn 2019. 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 Seville scientists,


• “Shadowing” of JRC scientists according to the individual fields of interest.


Interested Applicants are to submit their application documents electronically to jrc.mcst@gov.mt keeping melchior.cini@gov.mt in copy, with “JRC Malta Young Scientist Award” as a subject heading. Applications should be received by not later than midnight on Friday 13th September 2019. All submissions should be initialised or stamped on each page of the application form and a full signature by the applicant and head of entity on page 5 of the application form. Late or incomplete applications will not be considered. Only one application per scientist may be submitted and will be evaluated by MCST.
