Cooperation with non-European countries:
EMBO and EMBC aim to strengthen links between scientists in selected non-European partner countries and Europe. European scientists and scientists in the partner countries will collaborate via EMBO's core programmes.
There are two levels of cooperation between non-European partner countries and EMBO/EMBC: Co-operation agreements and Associate Membership.
- Co-operation agreements
Scientists in co-operating partner countries gain access to a subset of the EMBO programmes and activities.
The partner government contributes a fixed amount towards the related costs of these activities. All activities, as a rule, involve scientists from both scientific communities. Partner countries do not have observer status in EMBC. The co-operation agreements are an exploratory instrument and a stepping-stone towards Associate Membership of EMBC.
Current EMBO/EMBC co-operation partner is the Ministry of Science and Technology (MOST) of Taiwan.
- Associate Membership
Scientists in EMBC Associate Member States have full access to all of EMBO's programmes and activities including post-doctoral fellowships and short-term fellowships, courses and workshops, and the young investigator programme.
Associate Member States contribute a reduced membership fee to EMBC: 75% of an equivalent EMBC (full) Member State contribution. All new Member States may apply for a discount of 33.3% for the first three years of membership. An EMBC Associate Member State gains observer status in EMBC.
Current EMBC Associate Member States are India and Singapore.
