NSCMID Exchange Programme

The NSCMID exchange programme is only available to NSCMID members - both the person that seeks to go on exchange and the contact person from the department that accepts the visitor should be members of NSCMID.

Members can apply for grants to cover transportation and accommodation costs. It is not possible to apply for reimbursement of wages. Each applicant can apply for a maximum of 25.000 SEK.

The NSCMID exchange-programme aims to foster collaborations in research or the exchange of clinical or laboratory expertise. Both the applicant and the department he/she wishes to visit should be able to gain from the visit.

NSCMID will mainly support exchange between the Nordic countries, but exceptions can be made.

The recipient of an exchange grant is obliged to deliver a written report on the stay within 6 months of the stay.

Applications are handled by the NSCMID board on a running schedule as they are received. Applications should include a short description of the planned stay and a budget.

Applications may be sent to Annette.strandbo@clin.au.dk
