Mobility grants for young researchers

YRNCS mobility grants aim to foster interdisciplinary collaborations within the broader Complex Systems community. The aim of these grants is to fund young researchers who have already started collaborating with other young researchers in different institutions on topics that do not belong to their main research lines. This is meant to encourage cross­disciplinary and creative research on both sides. The visiting and the hosting candidates will have already started collaborating on a project before applying for the mobility grant. The application will consist of a short video with a presentation of the preliminary results obtained by the two candidates and illustrating the need for the visit. There is no a priori restriction on the length of the visit, but YRNCS will limit itself to a one­shot funding.

Requirements and application 1. to be eligible the recipients of the bursary, called visiting and receiving candidates, should be young researchers, as defined by the YRNCS rules (see h​ere)​, and members of the Complex Systems Society; 2. the scientific project to be pursued should not align with the main research lines of the two candidates (PhD topic in the case of phd students, or group’s research line in the case of postdocs); 3. an invitation letter for the visiting candidate by the host group’s PI is required; 4. the application itself consists in a short video­presentation (max 5 mins) produced by the candidates where the preliminary results of the project are described together with a road­map of the future work. While we are not interested in the technical level of the video, the candidates should consider this presentation as the pitch of their project and should therefore ensure that it contains all the relevant information for a correct assessment of the value of the project. 5. the candidates will be required to produce a report of the research performed during the visit; 6. the applications will be reviewed by senior researchers belonging to the CSS Council and the results will be made known via the YRNCS website and media outlets.

Funding The idea of the mobility grants is to provide partial support for short visits, so we envision funding up to 500 euros for within ­continent visits and up to 1000 euros for visits between different continents. YRNCS will generally open a single call per year at the beginning of the solar year. The funds awarded will have to be used within the same solar year. YRNCS guarantees short response times after the application deadline.
