The COST action PERIAMAR (PEsticide RIsk AssessMent for Amphibians and Reptiles) addresses, through a multidisciplinary network of scientists from academia, government, business and non-governmental organizations (NGOs), the challenge of ensuring a straightforward and useful procedure to avoid unacceptable risks of pesticides to amphibians and reptiles, contributing to solve existing uncertainties and to support ongoing efforts that, at the European level, aim to improve the efficacy of the whole scheme of Environmental Risk Assessment of pesticides.

Call for VIRTUAL MOBILITY GRANT applications


We are looking for candidates to conduct four Virtual Mobility Grants on the following topics: 

Selected grant holders will implement protocol for information reviews on one of these topics, which will be agreed in advance with the PERIAMAR Core Group.


  • Applicants should be affiliated to a legal entity in the form of a work contract, enrolment in a research-performing study programme (e.g. MSc, PhD or postdoc), voluntary service in an NGO, emeritus professorship or other forms that fit with the rules for implementing COST Actions.
  • VMGs will be initiated at any time from November 2023 and will preferably be terminated by 20th March 2024. For grants finalizing during March 2024, an intermediate report with preliminary results will be sent to the PERIAMAR Core Group no later than 28th February 2024.
  • Each VMG will be awarded with up to 1500 euros.
  • The VMG will not involve any physical travel; the grant is meant to contribute to the time spent in implementing the programmed tasks.
  • Grant holders will be invited to present their results at the PERIAMAR final meeting on 20-22 March 2024 at the German Environmental Agency (UBA) in Dessau. Travel expenses to that meeting will be covered by PERIAMAR.
