Impact of the Fellowships Programmes

The Arturo Falaschi ICGEB Fellowship Programmes offer high profile, multidisciplinary training and cover a range of topics in genetic engineering and biotechnology. The PhD Fellowship provides graduate students with all the necessary means to understand a scientific investigation in the field of Life Sciences, develop independent thought and critical view, personal responsibility and decision making skills. Postdoctoral fellows are trained for an average of two years, during which they actively participate in the research projects of the ICGEB laboratories.

Between 2010-2017 alone, the ICGEB has funded a total of 5344 Fellowship/months. In 2017, out of a total 112 applications received, 39 Arturo Falaschi Fellowships were awarded to promising young scientists, national of ICGEB Member States.

During 2017, a total of 333 Fellows performed research in the laboratories at the three ICGEB Component laboratories. Of these, 102 have been funded under the Arturo Falaschi Fellowship Programme and an additional 231 were funded on External grants for specific projects run by the ICGEB laboratories. 

ICGEB is committed to attaining and promoting gender equality in all its activities, and this is exemplified in the Fellowship Programme: in 2017, of 333 Fellows, 173 were women.

In 2017, 5 SMART Fellowships were awarded, promoting South-South mobility of researchers.
