Support from early-career researchers to ‘Standing up for Science EU’ is now more important than ever, and it is crucial that their voices are heard in public debates about science and evidence.
In June 2017, MCAA joined the first ‘Standing up for Science EU’ workshop in Brussels, to give early career researchers the tools and insights to inform policy, and have a stronger voice within the EU. This workshop was hugely over-subscribed, and received very positive feedback from both partners and participants, In the light of this success, the MCAA is participating in a second ‘Standing up for Science EU’ workshop, at the University of Warsaw, on Friday 10th November 2017.
Date: 2017-11-10; 09h00 to 16h00
Venue: University of Warsaw, Poland
Registration: (mandatory, but free) at bit.ly/2wzDrv3 DEADLINE IS WEDNESDAY, 2017-10-04, 17HOO CET
IMPORTANT: Sense about Science has allocated ten 'reserved' places only for MCAA members: five for the MCAA members in general, and five specifically for members of the MCAA Polish chapter. The ten selected members will each be offered an MCAA micro-grant to cover eligible expenses (i.e. travel and accommodation) under normal travel micro-grant rules (i.e. reimbursement of expenses to actual attendees on production of proof of eligible expenditures). There is no need to make any separate application for any MCAA micro-grant, as the ten available grants will be awarded to the ten MCAA members selected by Sense about Science. i.e.interested members should register at the above URL, and will be automatically eligible for an MCA micro-grant if selected by Sense about Science. NB: MCAA members should mention clearly on the registration form that they are part of MCAA, or the MCAA Polish Chapter, to be considered for one of the ten allotted places.
