The Coimbra Group of European universities offers short research trips for researchers from developing countries
- Some universities receive far more applications than others, so check the statistics for 2021
- Identifying a supervisor at a host institution is crucial, and it’s worth aiming for seniority
- Each university has its own criteria for evaluation and offers different funding options
- The scholarships are only available to researchers who are not already in Europe, and those who haven’t been on European research visits before will be prioritised
Every year, the Coimbra Group—an association of 41 universities across Europe—coordinates a scheme bringing young researchers from Latin America, Sub-Saharan Africa, and countries in the European neighbourhood to its members for short research visits.
