Recommendations about supporting EC grantees affected by the COVID-19 crisis

Strasbourg, 28 November 2020

Recently, ISE has been in contact with the Cabinet of Commissioner Gabriel to provide recommendations to support grantees of the European Commission who have been affected by the COVID crisis.

Our member organisations have worked together to collect as much data about the consequences on careers and mental health of young researchers and information about best practices put in place by other funders.

The conclusions of our work and recommendations to the Commission have been sent on the 20th of November 2020.
