The EMBO fellowships rates are calculated according to the OECD (Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development, http://www.oecd.org) data. The rates are calculated directly in the local currency to prevent variations due to exchange rates oscillations. Please note also that EMBO fellowships are twenty-four months research stipends and therefore should not be subjected to taxation.
It is possible to obtain from the host institution a top-up of the stipend. In this case, please inform the EMBO EMBO Fellowship office.
