A EURYI Award will give young researchers the opportunity to establish and lead an independent junior research group at a recognised European research institution. This programme of excellence, which is committed to the idea of early scientific independence, is based upon the "Memorandum of Understanding", signed by 20 scientific organisations from 16 European countries in May 2004. The programme is open to researchers from all scientific disciplines and is directed towards researchers from anywhere in the world. Each award will last for a five-year period and will include the salary of the award holder and funding for an independent junior research group (including two or three staff positions for doctoral students or postdoctoral students), as well as funding for consumables, travel expenses, etc.
Applicants for a EURYI Award should have an excellent scientific track record. They should have distinguished themselves through outstanding research achievements and demonstrate the potential to become world class le
