VALIDATE Training Grants

October 10, 2017

**Call now open – closes 4pm Tues 31st October 2017**

Training grants of up to £3000 are available to help VALIDATE Associates (Postdoctoral Researchers) take advantage of training opportunities that will contribute to their professional development. This can include (but is not limited to): attendance at courses or workshops, laboratory exchange, work shadowing, and attendance at an international conference to present a talk (travel to attend conferences is not supported in this fund; travel to the VALIDATE Network annual meeting is funded elsewhere). We particularly welcome applications from researchers based in low and middle-income countries (LMICs).

Training opportunities can be within, or external to, the VALIDATE Network; we advertise those we know of here but you can apply for other opportunities you hear of as well. The VALIDATE Members’ Directory may also give you ideas for potential laboratory exchanges or tech transfer visits.

The grants are awarded via competitive application to the Network Management Board.

Please submit your application form (found below) and associated documents by email by 4pm on the 31st October 2017 to the Network Manager ( Please ensure you read our application guidance document before you begin writing your application. Please also contact Sam at this address with any queries.
