The MGMS Early Career Virtual Workshop Initiative

The MGMS is pleased to announce a call for applications to the MGMS Early Career Virtual Workshop Initiative. Applicants are invited for proposals for on-line workshops or meetings on a topic that is broadly in line with the MGMS’s overall scientific remit, please see website for details of previous meetings for a rough guide. Although we do not envisage in person activities before September 2021 (this deadline might be extended depending on pandemic government guidance), we encourage virtual initiatives in the meantime. Applicants should complete the brief application form and a proposed budget. For a one-day virtual workshop, the budget is anticipated to be up to £300, but proposals outside this range will be considered. Applications should come from student groups or early career (within 5 years of their PhD award) researchers in either academia or industry. The deadline for applications is 31st May 2021 and applications should be emailed to the MGMS secretary (secretary@mgms.org). Applications will be notified in June of the outcome.
