Call for Short Scientific Visits

We are glad to announce the opening of the first call for Short Scientific Visits within IRN:QFS. The aim is to support short visits (less than 2 weeks) to a few partners who have agreed to earmark some limited fund for this program. The call is open to members of any of the institutions participating in IRN:QFS, with emphasis on junior scientists. The deadline for the first call, covering visits due to take place between July 15 and Dec 31st, 2022, is now postponed to June 17, 2022. See this page for more details.
