Aim of the joint call The Future Leaders in Ageing Research in Europe (FLARE) programme is now open for applications from early-career post-doctoral researchers. Twelve three-year FLARE 2 Fellowships in multi-disciplinary ageing research in Europe are available, based in: Austria, Finland, France, Israel, Luxembourg, Quebec, Romania, and Sweden. Funded by seven European countries, Fellowships are open to applications from candidates who embrace the two innovative features of the programme: part of the fellowship must be spent in another country and it must also involve a cross-disciplinary collaboration. To mark the launch of FLARE 2, a showcase of the FLARE 1 programme will take place in London on 4 August 2010. Fully funded places are open to early-career researchers, scientists, and funding agencies and the daylong event will include presentations by current FLARE Fellows as well as additional information about the FLARE 2 programme. Applications for fellowships can be submitted until 15 October 2010.
