ESAI Grassroots Workshop Support Scheme

Funding Programme

Grassroots Workshop Support Scheme

Funding Agency


Funding Description

ESAI with the support of the EPA are delighted to announce our new Workshop Support Scheme. The scheme is open to all ESAI members. Workshops are essential for the dissemination of research, knowledge exchange, development and exposure of early career researchers and for establishing new collaborations. They are a key networking tool, and an opportunity for early-stage researchers to increase their profile within a field of study.

The EPA/ESAI Workshop Support Scheme provides funding to postgraduate and postdoctoral researchers to organise a workshop in the broad environmental research area. The scheme is open to postgraduate and postdoctoral researchers who are members of the ESAI and who are conducting research relevant to the EPA remit.

The purpose of the EPA/ESAI Workshop Support Scheme is to assist early stage researchers with the delivery of workshops that fall within the remit of the ESAI and EPA. The event should be a stand-alone event, and not part of an international conference. The amount of the award for each event is €600 which is meant to be a contribution to the overall cost of the event. Proposals will be assessed every two month (month end August, October, December, February, April & June) and there must be a period of three months between submission of the proposal and the date of the event. Applications should include a one-page summary CV of the main applicant. The theme of the workshop must fit within the remits of the EPA and ESAI, who must be acknowledged in conference publicity materials.

The applications will be assessed six times per year by a panel drawn from the ESAI Council. Applications will be assessed on the quality of the proposal, how the event fits with the remits of the ESAI and EPA, and on the expected outputs and benefits of the proposed workshop. The diversity of the audience will also be taken into consideration, and workshops organised jointly between more than one institution will be favoured. Payments will be made by ESAI following submission of invoices. Successful applicants will be expected to submit an article to the ESAI e-zine describing the event.

Please send a completed application and one-page CV by e-mail to Sinead Macken ([email protected]) at least 3 months before the date of proposed workshop.
