The SOLARNET Mobility of Young Researchers Programme is pleased to inform all solar Physics community that the VII Call for Proposal is officially open.

This Programme aims to contribute to the professional development of researchers at the first steps of their careers, by offering short stays (up to 3 months) preferably at one of the SOLARNET member institutions, public or private entities. Other host institutions from anywhere will be also considered.

All proposals received prior to March 15th will be considered by the Mobility Evaluation Committee for the period July 1st - December 30th 2016.

The Mobility Evaluation Committee (MEC) will evaluate all submitted applications, and will select two of them for supporting travel, accommodation and subsistence costs.

In order to promote the advancement of equal opportunities for women and men in science and in particular to increase gender equality within the SOLARNET Mobility Programme, we strongly encourage young women astronomers to apply.

The selection of the granted proposals will be announced on March 31st.
