Funding available - call for New Phytologist Symposia and Workshop proposals

Last updated: 3 Feb, 2017


Funding of up to £43k is available to run New Phytologist Symposia and Workshops, with slots available for 2019 onwards. The application deadline for Symposia proposals is 28th February 2017.

 

The internationally renowned series of New Phytologist Symposia (NPS) aim to support emerging and key areas of research. Usually these meetings would be expected to last between one and three days, with invited speakers and a maximum of 120 delegates. In this way we hope to provide an informal atmosphere for the stimulation and exchange of ideas and the building of collaborations. We particularly encourage the involvement of early career researchers, and as such a number of travel grants will be awarded in association with each meeting.

We also welcome workshop proposals throughout the year and there is no set deadline for these; we can support workshops scheduled from 2017 onwards. Further details here: newphytologist.org/workshops.
