The REFUGE platform is open to the international plant science community

PhD and postdoctoral fellows, notably from the South are the first target beneficiaries.

REFUGE covers bench fees and REFUGE staff provides supervision of the hosted scientists, students and researchers.

REFUGE staff takes care of the materials between two visits of the hosted scientists.

Visitors have to find their own travel and subsistence funds. However, REFUGE can provide assistance to scientists notably from South countries, to find an appropriate funding source for travel and subsistence.

Due to the limited hosting capacities, research projects carried out in the platform have to be selected by the scientific committee of the platform. Criteria range from intrinsic qualities and feasibility of the proposal, commitment of proposers and training dimension.
