ECR support for EOU2017 and IOC2018
EOU2017 | Turku, Finland August 2017
BOU has had a strong presence at recent EOU conferences including supporting ECRs to attend. We will however not be attending EOU2017 or supporting ECRs to attend, diverting all our available funds to next years IOC2018 instead.
IOC2018 | Vancouver, Canada August 2018
We will be supporting BOU ECR members to attend IOC in 2018. We’ll detail what this support will entail later in the year here on the BOU website. Look out for a further newsletter and tweets and posts on social media announcing this.
This is the first time we’ve been able to support ECRs to attend an IOC, and it will provide an opportunity for BOU ECR members outside Europe to take advantage of this support, as support offered around EOU events tends to be taken up solely by European researchers.
Our usual condition that those wishing to take advantage of BOU support must be an ECR member in the year preceding the event they wish to attend.

20 August 2018 | Vancouver, Canada
The BOU is holding an open one-day meeting on the registration day, 20 August, of IOC2018, in Vancouver, Canada. The day has been planned specially to provide the large numbers of delegates arriving to register for IOC2018 on the Monday, with a series of presentations they can to pop in and out of during this free open day.
We will be seeking submissions and will provide further details of this, and the format of the day, on the BOU website in mid-2017.
