BOU ECR travel grants to attend IOC2018
The BOU has awarded 13 travel grants for BOU Early Career Researcher (ECR) members to help them attend the International Ornithological Congress (IOC) in Vancouver, Canada, 19-26 August 2018.
This is the first time we’ve been able to support ECRs to attend an International Ornithological Congress, and it will provide an opportunity for BOU ECR members outside Europe to take advantage of this support, as support offered around our traditional events tends to be taken up solely by European researchers.
We received a total of 23 applications from which the following 13 ECRs have received awards:
