The UNESCO Short-term Fellowship Programme in Biotechnology is designed to stimulate and facilitate research and training in plant and aquatic biotechnology and related environmental biotechnologies. Through this scheme scientists, particularly from developing countries, are encouraged to carry out research at well established scientific centres and to learn to use techniques that are normally not available to them in their own countries. To be eligible, a candidate must: - Already be engaged in research in biotechnology - Upon termination of the fellowship, must return to his or her country of residence to put the know ledge acquired to beneficial use in local research and training programmes; - Provide evidence that the theoretical and practical knowledge or training acquired at the host laboratory will be beneficial to the candidate`s on-going research programme. Applications submitted must be accompanied by a letter of recommendation from someone familiar with the candidate's work and a letter of acceptance from the host institute. All applications must be made on a UNESCO/BAG application form to be received by 30 June or 30 December of the calendar year.
