T19: all year-round funding for network members’ training

All-year round training opportunities for network members

The CONNECTED Training Voucher scheme proved popular during its first call. There will be further calls, offering similar opportunities to organise funded lab visits, work shadowing and workshops. Further details of dates will follow… but we are now in a position to go one step further.

We recognise that training opportunities appear all year round, not just when a training funding application window is open.

So for the whole of 2019 we are inviting applications from network members who see an existing training course or workshop they would like to attend which would benefit their professional development.

Training opportunities for early career researchers

For the new ‘T19’ scheme there is no application window. Applications are open to all network members, and preference will be given to those who are Early Career Researchers and to those who are based in DAC-list countries.

To apply, just complete and return the application form here when you see an existing training opportunity you are interested in. Do please read the full application guidance notes before applying. We will respond to your application within three weeks’ maximum. If it is successful, we will:

• pay for your place, and
• refund your travel, accommodation and subsistence costs when you submit receipt/s to us

up to a combined total of £2,000 per successful applicant.

It’s our Christmas and New Year gift to valued network members.
