Researchers attend conferences, courses and workshops to build their knowledge, gain new skills and share their findings, but obtaining funding to attend events can be very difficult, especially for researchers based in low- and middle-income countries (LMIC). That’s why we have recently trialled a new programme to offer EACR Researcher Development Grants.

We have now awarded 14 of these grants to help EACR members based in countries with a low- or middle-income economy who need financial assistance to attend a workshop, course or conference that will support their career development and research advancement. EACR Researcher Development Grants can be used to attend EACR conferences as well as courses, workshops and conferences offered by other organisations.
