European Membrane Society Summer School 2025: Call for proposals is open

European Membrane Society Summer School 2025: Call for proposals is open

The Society is keen on supporting scientific or technical events related to the field of membranes and membrane processes, particularly with a focus on events involving young and early-stage researchers. Therefore, the EMS has opened the Call for Proposals for the 39th EMS Summer School in 2024.

In order to have your Summer School accepted as an EMS event, you should apply to the EMS Council according to the following guidelines:

The application should specify the following:

  • description of the facilities for the Summer School and proposed dates;
  • the tentative program, including course contents and timing;
  • members of the organizing committee (including members of the EMS Council);
  • members of the scientific committee (including members of the EMS Council);
  • budget outline, including:
    • any request for EMS funding or loan;
    • list of sponsors;
    • expected number of participants;
    • break-even number;
    • registration fee estimation. Any organizational work outsourcing should be included in the budget. Any EMS loan received would be expected to be returned as the first call on excess income over expenses. Additional excess income will be split evenly between the EMS and the organizers. The EMS will not cover losses beyond the EMS funding. The EMS membership fees should be collectible with the registration fees. All rights and duties will be formalized in a contract with the EMS.
  • Important websites related to the proposal.

Proposals will be selected according to the following criteria:

  • Scientific program
  • Conference venue/organizational and professional planning
  • Registration fees
  • Financial risk involved in the event

The selected application will be announced in November 2024.
