Laboratory Exchange Awards of up to £10,000 are available to help IVVN members facilitate transfer of technological experience between laboratories in the Network and/or allow specialised proof-of-concept pieces of work to be conducted by IVVN members. These awards will cover travel, accommodation and laboratory consumables, and will be awarded via competitive application to the IVVN Network Management Board.
Applicants must be members of the IVVN (registration is available here), and we particularly welcome applications from members who are Early Career Researchers and/or based in low-and-middle income countries (LMICs).
Please note, either the visiting or hosting researcher must be based at a research organisation in the UK or a LMIC.
