ENABLE (European Academy for Biomedical Science, an initiative partially funded by the European Union Horizon 2020 programme) aims to involve young scientists in opening the academic world from within by promoting crosstalk between biomedical disciplines, collaboration with industry, and engagement with society. 

FEBS has previously sponsored the ENABLE PhD–Postdoc meeting and this year in collaboration with IUBMB is offering travel grants. The FEBS–IUBMB travel grants for the event have a maximum total value of €500 each. This is to cover the early bird registration fee of €110, and the awardee's accommodation and (part of) their travel costs. There are 14 awards available.

The eligibility criteria and application procedure for these can be found on the registration page of the ENABLE 2019 website and are also summarised below:
